METAMORPHIKA Amphorae & Orange Wines run by Joan Franquet. We work with low intervention . Located at Conca de Barberà (TARRAGONA). The vineyards are very old, spanning different “terroirs”at high altitudes (400 to 800). With the high contrast of temperatures between day and night, the grapes can mature for long periods allowing the preservation of freshness and acidity. The harvest is doing by hand with many selections . The temperatures are always controlled throughout the entire process. The fermentation is doing in Spanish clay amphora “Tinajas”, concrete tanks and stand steel and used barrels. We do the major part are whites with skin contact during several weeks ( 8 to 14 weeks with skin contact for Orange wines). The reds wines with do with skin contact during all the fermentation process, post maceration with the skins during few weeks. Aging is done in clay amphorae and used “Demi muids”. The estate works with many different grape varieties: The White grapes : Macabeu , Xarel-lo , Sumoll Blanc , Chenin blanc, Viognier and Muscat. The Reds are Sumoll negre , Trepat ,Red Grenache and Carignan..The estate's strictly holds to low intervention. We do still wines and also 3 ANCESTRALS. On the vineyard we practice low intervention. NO filtrations done, we don’t stabilize the wines.
