Frontonio 2021 El Casetero Macabeo - The Spanish Table

Frontonio 2021 El Casetero Macabeo

This white wine from Spain's Aragon region is an absolute steal for this price.  Macabeo sounds intriguing, but it's the same as Viura, the workhorse grape of white Riojas.  In this case, the wine has a delightful balance of the round, juicy ripe pear flavors typical of the varietal with a gorgeous floral nose.  Owing the the aging in concrete tanks on the lees (without battonage), the wine gets extra complexity without getting thick or heavy.  Many wines we sell that taste like this are easily $10 more.  See the estate notes below for more on the amazing Bodegas Frontonio.

We simply love everything Bodegas Frontonio does. Led by Fernando Mora, everything here turns out tasty and affordable. I recently met him, and you couldn't imagine a more easygoing, informal, yet serious person, given his credentials. Fernando is informally endorsed by one of Spain's most masterful winemakers in Rioja (she will remain anonymous), with her quoted as saying that “if there is one person in the wine world that I could recommend it is Fernando Mora, because he gives me hope for the future of the world of wine in Spain." This is not hyperbole, and he proves it. In his own words, this is what Fernando does : "recovering old vineyards in Valdejalón area in the north east part of Spain. Producing single vineyards garnachas from old vines up to 98 years old. Something we are very proud to do." With his partner Mario López they style themselves the “Garage Winery”, that being a literal description of the facility in which they originally crafted their wines. Oh, and Fernando became a Master of Wine, earning special distinction for his treatise on the Garnacha in Campo de Borja.
