Product Description
Details

That Spain is not only a land of great red wines, but of remarkable whites as well, is nicely exemplified by the wine Mas de Mancuso Macabeo.

Produced by the innovative Mas de Mancuso winery, headed by the prestigious winemaker Jorge Navascués, this impressive Spanish white wine comes from the unlikeliest of places: DO Cariñena - a region in Aragón not to be confused with the grape variety of the same name.

A varietal Macabeo, this white wine from Carñena is sourced from over 60-year-old vineyards with slate soils situated at 670 metres of altitude, near the village of Almonacid de la Sierra.

Hand-picked and cold-macerated, the grapes were fermented in open stainless steel tanks. After that, the white wine Mas de Mancuso 2020 was aged in 500-litre French oak barrels for 16 months. It was bottled in October 2022.

Pair this Crianza red wine with oily fish and seafood rice recipes, white meat and soft cheeses.

Appearance

The white wine Mas de Mancuso Macabeo is deep straw with some steely reflections. 

Nose

This varietal Macabeo is subtle, nuanced and beautifully defined, with some pear and peach notes and an appealing limestone minerality, combined with hints of flowers and Mediterranean scrubland.

Palate

Sleek and poised, with with a lovely complexity and balanced intensity, a steely acidity and a mineral and floral undercurrent. This wine of the Mas de Mancuso winery has a long finish with an aftertaste of peachy fruit and spices.

Our personal opinion

Somewhat reminiscent of a fine Pouilly-Fumé, the wine Mas de Mancuso Macabeo 2020 is an astounding white wine from DO Cariñena.

Beautiful wine
Value
I must confess I bought this wine because of the Parker review and I certainly don't regret it. This turned out to be something really special, a terroir-transparent, impressive white with real complexity.
