Planted in 1971 with an old clone of Macabeo by the great-grandfather of Mr. Joan Marrugat, the founder and owner of the winery, the vineyard is farmed with sustainable techniques. Cover crops are used to favour the microbial life of the soil, and weeding is done by hand twice a year.
Hand-harvested in 15 kg boxes, the grapes were selected, fully destemmed and macerated for 48 hours at 10ºC. After that, this Spanish white wine began alcoholic fermentation in stainless steel tanks with native yeasts, and completed the process in concrete diposits and barrels.
Subsequently, the white wine Plana d’en Jan Camp del Cuc 2019 was aged on lees for 4 months in 2nd year French oak barrels.
Once bottled, this Penedès white wine remained in the cellar for some years before being released into the market.
The production of this vegan white wine is ridiculously low. Only 600 bottles.
The white wine Plana d’en Jan Camp del Cuc is medium yellow with some greenish glints.
This old vines Macabeo is lively and concentrated, with a subtle toasted edge to the ripe bone fruit, hints of fennel and cinnamon, a spark of lime and lemon peel and a cedary spicy note.
This white wine of bodega Plana d’en Jan is rich and inviting, with spices and toast framing the fruit, a pithy note, a steely acidity that nicely balances the warmth and a long, gently bitter finish with a twist of Med herbs.
