Product Description
Details

Produced in the western Catalan region of Costers del Segre, the wine Missenyora is a varietal Spanish white wine made solely from Macabeo by the L'Olivera Cooperativa winery.

The grapes were harvested by hand and whole bunch pressed. Then this white wine from Costers del Segre was fermented in 80% American and 20% French oak barrels, and subsequently aged for some months with weekly stirrings.

Interestingly, the winery recovered an old technique that consists in adding concentrated wine must - obtained through boiling - to this vegan white wine (the proportion being 9 to 10 grams per litre). Because of that fact, the wine Missenyora 2021 shows a great balance between acidity and sweetness.

Incidentally, Missenyora (which literally means "Milady") was the way people addressed the abbess of the Vallbona de les Monges Monastery, a stone's throw away from the winery.

Appearance

The white wine Missenyora is medium yellow with some greenish tinges.

Nose

Clean and expressive, this varietal Macabeo suggests some notes of white flowers and white fruit, alongside aromas of toast, ctirus, aromatic herbs, dim mineral undertones and some smokey nuances.

Palate

Enticing notes of flowers, bone fruit and citrus, combined with mineral and spicy suggestions. This white wine from L'Olivera Cooperativa has a well-balanced acidity and a long, delicately herbal and citrusy finish.

Our personal opinion

Moreish and characteristic, the wine Missenyora 2021 will pair excellently with sautéed vegetables, white fish and creamy cheeses.

Delicious. The palate is a combination of spices, apricots and hazelnuts. Nice body and long finish.
