Domaine La Toupie Solo Macabeu, IGP Cotes Catalan 2018, 13%
Light in colour with a full floral nose. Hints of apricot and peach on the palate. Delightfully crisp and refreshing. 100% Macabeu. Lovely on its own or with salads and grilled fish.
Macabeu is a traditional Catalan grape grown on both sides of the French/Spanish border. Jerome has a parcel of old vines on the Maury hillside that were previously used to make fortified wine. He wanted to show what exceptional dry wines can be made from this traditional variety. Hand-picking, low yields and modern winemaking techniques have created an elegant wine.
