Costador Metamorphika Sumoll Negre Conca de Barbara 2017
Costador, run by Joan Franquet, works only using organic and biodynamic practices on a singular mountain of 60 to 110 year old vines, covering different terroirs: slate, clay, and limestone at altitudes between 400 to 800 meters. Fermented in Amphora and aged in French oak barrels, this 2017 Sumoll Negre is a unique grape, only found in the Catalonia region of northeast Spain. The old vines and the high altitude contribute to its fresh minerality, and almost Pinot Noir-like character. It offers vibrant red fruit tang with pleasing herbal notes and gentle tannin. Enjoy with an eclectic cheese board or roasted duck sausage and white beans.
