Javi Revert Viticultor, Simeta
By Pete's Provisions
WHY WE LOVE THIS WINE
This wine was produced from Arcos, a sort of Mediterranean Pinot Noir. And the 2018 is a killer of purity, precision and freshness.
ABOUT THE WINERY
Simeta is made from the rare, local, and indigenous variety Arcos which once was widely planted in Valencia before phylloxera. Perfectly suited to the Mediterranean this variety ripens late (always after Monastrell) but retains a fresh acidity and boasts a moderate alcohol level. Javi’s Arcos comes from 1 hectare of 50-year-old vines planted in the Simeta vineyard. Harvested by hand it is fermented 70% whole cluster by indigenous yeast in concrete vats followed by 15 months aging in neutral 500L French oak demi-muids.
