Details

Produced in the northern Catalan region of Costers del Segre, Missenyora is a single varietal Spanish white wine.

Crafted by L'Olivera Cooperativa solely from Macabeo, the 2018 vintage was rather interesting, as it was an uncommonly rainy one.

The grapes were harvested by hand, whole bunch pressed, fermented in 80% American and 20% French oak barrels, and subsequently aged for 4 months with weekly stirrings.

After that, the winery recovered an old technique that consists in adding concentrated wine must - obtained through boiling - to this Crianza white wine (the proportion being 9 to 10 grams per litre). Thus, the resulting white wine from Costers del Segre shows a great balance between acidity and sweetness.

Drink Missenyora 2018 until 2023.

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

Additional Information

Appearance

The white wine Missenyora has a pale yellow colour with some greenish tinges.

Nose

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

Palate

Clean and palate-coating, this Macabeo is really moreish. Enticing notes of flowers, bone fruit and citrus, combined with mineral and spicy suggestions. This white wine by L'Olivera Cooperativa has a well-balanced acidity and long, delicately herbal and citrusy finish.

Our personal opinion

Original and characteristic, Missenyora 2018 is fresher and crispier than the previous vintages. Pair it with sauteed vegetables, white fish or creamy cheeses.

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