Description

Variety
100% Garnacha Blanca. Organically grown (certified) vines planted in 1920. Tended in limestone and clay soil at 475 m (1,558 ft) elevation

Production
Once the grapes are harvested, the best berries from the choice bunches are selected to make this unique wine. The wine is aged for seven months in French oak barrels.

Tasting Notes
Vibrant, mineral-driven citrus and orchard fruit aromas are complemented by honeysuckle, ginger and a touch of quinine. On the palate, bitter pear skin and Meyer lemon flavors show very good depth and vivacity, along with a firming jolt of smoky minerality. The finish unwinds slowly, showing excellent concentration, persistence and lingering floral character.

Food Pairing
This white has aromas of wet stones and a terrific earthy minerality. The wine shows a creamy texture in the mouth, with bright acidity that underpins the wine’s structure, finesse, great complexity and great length on the palate.
