Real reviews from customers who have purchased this product

El Jardín de las Iguales Blanco 2016 is a single-variety Macabeo variety white wine produced by the Frontonio winery in the VT Valdejalón.

The Frontonio project is run according to their motto: a garage, old vines and a dream to make the best wine”. This is a small winery set up by three friends who work to revive exceptional and unique vineyards in the province of Zaragoza. Through limited production microvinfication, Fernando Mora, Mario López and Francisco Latasa have managed to give Aragón’s Garnacha variety a new lease of life and give the Macabeo variety the prominence it deserves.

El Jardín de las Iguales Blanco is the name of a vineyard that is under 2 hectares in size in the Barrandijos Valley, lying at an altitude of over 700 metres above sea level. This is a hundred-year-old vineyard growing the Garnacha and Macabeo varieties on slate and quartzite soils. As you can imagine, each strain produces very few grapes, but their quality is very high. The site is not accessible for machinery, so all the work in the field is manual.

Once the El Jardín de las Iguales Blanco grapes are harvested, they are pressed in the traditional way, using feet. To make this wine, cold chambers are used for 2 days of pre-fermentation maceration. This happens with varying proportions of the stems and fermentation takes place at a constant low temperature. Finally, it ages for 12 months in foudres.

El Jardín de las Iguales Blanco is a young and celebrated example of the Macabeo grape in its most fresh, subtle and mineral expression. Although this variety has always existed in Aragon, it has never had the prominence it deserves up until now.

Bodegas Frontonio was created in 2008 by three friends from Aragón, Fernando Mora, aspirant Master of Wine, Mario López, oenologist from Bodegas Borsao, and Francisco Latasa, lawyer and international trade expert. Fernando started making wines in his parents’ garage. Shortly after, his two friends joined him on this fabulous journey.
