Amos feels Macabeu is an incredible grape, with complex fruit and cool salty acidity, but it’s difficult to grow because the skin is thin, the cluster is tight and so it’s prone to disease. So, many Macabeu wines are earthy and vegetal. The investment Amos makes in the vines pays off with a Macabeu that has a subtle but intense fruit within a celestial, light, silky structure.
"Ampolla" is a white wine from the D.O. Penedés produced by Amós Bañeres in San Martí Sarroca, Barcelona. The Macabeu vines used for the wine are planted in a 2 ha plot with calcareous-clay soils and grown and cultivated using organic techniques (planted in 1989 by Baneres' grandfather). At the winery the grapes are destemmed and during the pressing the stems are introduced and fermentation is carried out using ambient yeast. Matured for 6 months on its fine lees in stainless steel tanks. Minimal sulfur.
