here is yet another red, the 2016 Simeta, a single-vineyard Arcos (a variety with a long cycle) from a plot planted in 1970 on sand and clay soils. The grapes fermented with 60% full clusters, with the last of the fermentation in clay amphorae, where it rested for eight months followed by two months in glass demijohns. Arcos is sometimes called Arco and other similar names, and they all seem to be the same variety. Apparently, it's an autochthonous grape, and 100 years ago some 70% of the plantings were of this grape. It's a long-cycle variety (ripens later than the Monastrell), with thick skins, very resistant to rot, very apt for the Mediterranean climate. There is good ripeness, in a northern Rhône way, juicy and keeping the freshness. At times, it also reminded me of some reds from Ribeira Sacra (Lousas from Envínate) or a Garnacha from Gredos (Comando G), but it also had a Mediterranean accent. I found this fascinating, juicy and tasty. 1,010 bottles were filled in July 2017.

Javi Revert Viticultor is the solo project of Celler del Roure's winemaker Javier "Javi" Revert. It started in 2014 when he fell in love with a vineyard planted by his great grandfather with white grapes. And he found a part of the Font de la Figuera village with white soils at 700 to 800 meters altitude, pure chalk à la Jerez or Champagne. So, he recovered some old vineyards and replanted terraces that had been abandoned for almost 50 years. His first wines are from 2016. Definitely a new name to follow. Luis Gutierrez 93+
