Tasting Notes

WINE INFORMATION

Bodegas Frontonio is a partnership of Fernando Moro, Master of Wine, international lawyer Francisco Latasa and oenologist Mario Lopez, who own 50 hectares of vines. 2010 was their first vintage and the winery really took off in 2014. The wines are made in a very understated “garage” in the rear of a wine retail shop. The philosophy is minimal intervention with a focus on small plots of land.

Grapes are sourced from old vines which are dry farmed organically. This is a sunny, dry region with very little rain and a prevailing wind called the Cierzo. The Macabeo grows on hillside vineyards in a grey chalky soil composed of clay and limestone. Grapes are hand-harvested and fermented and (briefly) aged in stainless steel tanks.

TASTING NOTES

Aromas of orchard fruit, herbs, citrus and touches of mineral. Vivid, fresh, and long on the palate with apricot, apple, pear, white tea, fennel and stone flavors.

FOOD PAIRING

This wine can be enjoyed with poultry such as chicken or turkey, with medium-weight fish such as trout or grouper, and with pastas, vegetables or cheeses. Alternatively, try it with a gratin, quiche or rice dish.
