2020 Finca Calvestra
The Finca Calvastra vineyard is a tiny plot at 900 meters altitude, with 100+ year old vines comingled with ancient olive trees. The Merseguera, which favors the slow ripening conditions at high altitude is one of very few plots and the only single vineyard of this almost extinct variety.
The wine is fermented and aged 11 months in acacia wood barrels.
Creamy, elegant and fresh with citrus, white peach, and green tea aromas with distinct floral notes. Voluminous, juicy fruit flavors of pear and zest that are both agile and long on the palate. A complex, lasting, mineral finish that is refreshing, deep, and satisfying.

”The white 2020 Finca Calvestra was produced with Merseguera grapes planted at 920 meters in altitude and fermented in 225- and 500-liter acacia wood barrels, where it matured with fine lees for 11 months. It has 14% alcohol, a low pH of 3.19 and 6.2 grams of acidity. As I’ve seen when comparing some 2020s with 2019s, this feels more primary and round, more powerful and a little riper with some balsamic notes and a bitter twist in the finish..” - Luis Gutierrez/p>
