Celler Costador – Metamorphika Trepat – DO Catalunya, Barberà de la Conca
The Metamorphika Trepat is a high altitude trepat, a calm red wine from a vineyard of about 70 years in Barberà de la Conca, about 500 meters high.
Partially fermented with the grape in large-volume clay vats and aged for 12 months in fourth- and fifth-use French oak barrels.
The bottle is also made of clay
It is an autochthonous red grape variety from the Conca de Barberà with which light and fruity wines are made, with good acidity and medium alcohol content.
When made as a rosé, a light, fresh and fruity wine is obtained. In reds you get a fresh wine with a color and aroma that make it unique.
The first red trepat wine was made in 1987, it was a carbonic maceration wine. However, from 1986 to 2004 the variety of trepat is maintained mainly in cooperatives for the production of rosé wines. It was not until 2004 that the elaboration of the inside of trepat reds was recovered.
From 2009 onwards, there is a tendency to make red wines for trepat.
Costador Terroir Mediterranis
Costadors is a project that has long gained a well-deserved reputation as a ‘top’ wine in the many export markets where it is present, and which is slowly opening a hole in local menus and shelves.
From the oldest wine cooperative building in Spain, in Barberà de la Conca, Joan Franquet vinifies the three product lines that make up Costador, practicing biodynamic agriculture and natural vinification.
We are a winery that works unique vineyards with only organic and biodynamic agriculture.
The vineyards are old, most of them between 60 and 110 years old with different "terroirs" (clay and limestone). They are located at altitudes between 400 and 800 meters.
With a strong thermal contrast, our grapes can mature for a long time and retain their freshness and acidity.
We control the temperature of the whole process, from the moment we harvest the grapes, during fermentation and then aging.
We ferment with wild and native yeasts in amphorae or in stainless steel tanks and oak barrels.
The final wine is a real grape juice, authentic and with natural aromas.
