2016 REVEILLE "WHITE SPIRIT" MACABEU COTES CATALANES BLANC
This vineyard encompasses 8.6 hectares of cool terroirs, in the upper Valley of l'Agly. The Estate began with old Carignan planted in 1900, and has since expanded to include Grenache, Syrah, Macabeu and Grenache Gris as well. Soils are mostly gneiss and granite and the climate hot and dry. This white is clean and crisp with a salty minerality and notes of grapefruit rind, easy to drink and well-paired with food, esepcially freshl sheep’s’ milk cheese. Unfined, unfiltered, negligible sulfur.
