2017 Costador, "Metamorphika" Sumoll- Blan Brisat, Catalunya Spain
"Pertaining to or characterized by change or form" - Metamorphic
Costador, run by Joan Franquet, works only using organic and biodynamic practices on a singular mountain where there are very old vineyards\\. The vineyards are very old, the majority of them between 60 to 110 year, spanning different “terroirs” (slate, clay and limestone) and at altitudes between 400 to 800 meters. The bottle draws enough attention but its whats in the bottle that strikes gold. Medium amber color with notes of orange zest, grapfruit and stone fruit. Beautiful texture from 6 week skin contact in amphorae and then refined in French oak barrels of several uses for 5 months.

Joan Franquet strives to preserve the authentic flavor and taste of the varietals and so only uses wild and autochthonous yeasts for fermentation. The major part of the fermentation is done in amphora or stainless steel tanks, along with used French and acacia oak barrels. Aging is completed in amphorae and used oak as well. Joan Franquet allows a genuine wine to develop from it's place of origin.
