Palate Profile

Macán Clásico is a wine more attached to the territory. Freshness, fruitiness and delicacy are its hallmarks. Its elaboration takes place in stainless steel tanks, with a part of malolactic fermentation in oak, and a barrel aging that ranges between 12 and 14 months depending on the characteristics of the vintage.

Critic Awards

Rich, but refined and layered nose that unwinds dark plums, dried strawberries, olives, cocoa beans and some savory Mediterranean spices. Medium-to full-bodied palate, framed by an abundance of powerful, fine-grained tannins that give a grippy texture.

The second wine in the Bordeaux sense is the 2019 Macán Clásico.It has a moderate 14% alcohol, mellow acidity and good freshness and balance. 2019 was a dry and warm year when they did a soft vinification to avoid harsh tannins. The nose is ripe without excess, and the oak is neatly integrated. The palate is juicy and round, with fine tannins and a velvety texture.

A balanced, medium-bodied red, with a pleasing, plush texture, this shows a well-knit range of ripe cherry and black raspberry, red licorice, dried thyme and hints of espresso and loamy earth. Features fine-grained tannins, which emerge to firm the spiced finish.
