Overview

Simeta is made from the rare, local and indigenous variety Arcos which once was widely planted in Valencia before phylloxera. Perfectly suited to the Mediterranean this variety ripens late (always after Monastrell) but retains a a fresh acidity and boasts a moderate alcohol level. Javi’s Arcos comes from 1 hectare of 50 year-old vines planted in the Simeta vineyard. Harvested by hand it is fermented 60% whole cluster by indigenous yeast in tank and amphorae followed by 8 months aging in amphorae, the 2 months in glass demi-johns.
