Produced by the Jané Ventura winery, Jané Ventura Finca Els Camps Macabeu is made from 50-year-old vineyards.
After the harvest, the grapes of this organic Spanish white wine were destemmed and cold-soaked for 2 days.

Decant this white wine from Penedès 30 minutes before drinking.
Clean and bright, Jané Ventura Finca Els Camps has a pale yellow colour with some steely tinges.
This single estate Macabeo from Penedès smells of pears, lime and medlar, nuanced by some balsamic and smokey suggestions, and remembrances of white flowers and aromatic herbs.
Elegant and savoury, this white wine by Jané Ventura shows a great balance and a crisp acidity. Some balsamic and toasted nuances, hints of dry fruit and white fruit, and remembrances of citrus, flowers and spices. Finca Els Camps has a long, delicately bitter finish.

This white wine tends to the understated, restrained side. It has a big structure with an earthy, herbal profile, crisp but not bone dry. I enjoyed it very much.
