Wine Navarro Lopez, "Cuatro Gatos" Macabeo
Reviews of purchase Navarro Lopez, "Cuatro Gatos" Macabeo
The wine is pure lemon yellow with a greenish tinge.
The taste of wine is fresh, well balanced, has a gentle acidity. Inviting flower-fruit bouquet invitingly requests to take another sip.
Intensive varietal aroma of wine is revealed by notes of hay, white flowers, stone and tropical fruits, among which pineapple, peach and apple. With every minute it becomes more and more expressive.
Wine is combined with rice, white fried meat, French fries, salads, pasta, vegetables, veal, seafood and desserts.
The wine list "Cuatro Gatos" perfectly conveys the character of one of the most temperamental regions of Spain, La Mancha, which occupies a prominent place in the heart of the country. Local wines are increasingly receiving close attention from critics, deserving an assessment of "promising, with good potential," even though many of them are just simple table wines. A long, hot, arid summer allows all varieties grown here to open and sound in a new way.
Semi-sweet white wine "Cuatro Gatos" Macabeo is made from Macabeo grapes. After harvesting, the berries are subjected to traditional vinification, passing with strict temperature control.
The company Navarro Lopez was founded in 1904 as a modest family winery Don Juan Sanchez Megia. The original winery still preserved in the city Valdepenas. In 1988 the winery acquired Navarro Doroteo Donado, the current owner, whose main objective was to produce high-quality vintage wines selected grapes.
In 2001, the factory was moved from Valdepenas to its current location near the motorway Autovia del Sur, a unique place in the heart of the vineyard, thus highlighting a clear commitment Navarro Doroteo Donado to environmental factors. Since 2002, Navarro Lopez begins to produce wine "Tierra de Castilla". To further expand the company's wine series were acquired vineyards located in the areas of Rioja, Ribera del Duero and Rueda.
In 2010, the company acquired one of the cult wineries of Rioja - Bodegas Valoria.
