2015 Finca Calvestra, Merseguera, Bodega Mustiguillo, Valencia, Spain

Description

The white varietal Merseguera 2015 Finca Calvestra comes from a single dry-farmed, head-pruned vineyard at 920 meters altitude, which resulted in a wine with moderate alcohol and very good freshness that still keeps the Mediterranean character. It fermented in acacia barrels where it was kept with the fine lees for nine months. There is a volatile whiff and some austerity, both in the nose and in the palate. It's a wine with a low pH that needs some time in bottle to develop further aromas and flavors. The palate showed moderate acidity, with the wood nicely integrated, almost unnoticeablethe barrels are the same, so they are getting older each vintagewith a tasty finish. It should develop nicely in bottle. 11,630 bottles were filled in September 2016.

About this WINE

Bodega Mustiguillo

Bodega Mustiguillo

One word summarises the Mustiguillo message and that word is Bobal, one of the greatest and most under-rated of Spanish grape varieties, and now on the cusp of a renaissance in the Mediterranean vineyards to mirror that of the Mencia varietal in Bierzo and other parts of North-West Spain. Mustiguillo is a family project, dedicated to organic viticulture and the pursuit of elegance and finesse rather than excess oak and the like. A well-rehearsed mantra maybe, but one that does not have many adherents of such pedigree.
