Thinking I need to try this.

Celler Credo

Miranius Xarel-lo 2012

A truly surprising wine: mostly #Xarel-lo + a small % of #Macabeu from a #biodynamic producer in the #Penedès. Till I looked at the label I was convinced this was a Loire white, minerality and all. — 7 years ago

Horizonte de Exopto Rioja White Blend 2018

9.0

This is one of those few (and I do mean few) wines where it tastes better with #coravin than #uncorked With Coravin it has a lovely bouquet full of white flowers, citrus and hints of oak. Uncorked it just gets all acidic and looses the delicate complexity. Still, that being said...it is one of the better white #Rioja that I have tried and I’ve tried plenty. Reasonably priced. #macabeo #macabeu #viura #garnachablanca #grenacheblanc #malvasia — 10 months ago

Roussillon Grenache Gris Blend

9.0

Blend of #Grenachegris and #grenacheblanc and #Macabeu.
Alluvial Rolled clay pebbles for the Macabeu.
Shale (schist) lands for Grenache.
Fermentation of musts in demi muids (500 l), aging on lees. Racking of wines and bottling without fining (a little reduction on the nose)

Mendall

Abeurador Terra Alta Maccabeu

Texture! Had me at the first sip. High extract and a little bitter initially... Paired with an oily fish (pesto or rich sauce would also do) and this becomes a winner. #texture #macabeu #terraalta #mendal — 6 years ago
