Llumí Blanc is a fruity blend of White Grenache and Macabeu. This is a smooth easy-drinking white with gentle notes of lemon and grapefruit on the nose and peach on the palate, with refreshing acidity and a mineral core.

Description

Varieties
White Grenache (55%) and Macabeu (45%)

Terroir
The Macabeu is from vines ranging in age from 25 to 35 years old and the White Grenache (Garnatxa Blanca) from vines between 10 and 50 years old. All are grown at 400m in the Mas de Cabrera vineyards in Gandesa. Soils at Mas de Cabrera are rich in limestone with very little organic matter. All vines are dry farmed. The summer was warmer than average, the grapes were harvested in the last week of August.

Production
The grapes were hand picked separately then chilled to 4°C, before passing over a selection table, destemming, crushing and gentle pressing. These musts were held cold for 2 days then the clear juice racked off for a controlled fermentation in stainless steel at 18°C. The wines were blended together in December.

    Fantastic everyday white. Why buy industrial Pinot Grigio or similar when you can have this, packed with way more interest and depth. Love it!

  2. Angela Watkins (verified owner)

    Nice clean wine.

  3. Anne Frew (verified owner)

    Went well with our chicken veronique. I’m telling all my friends about this wine – it’s really versatile.

  4. David Cronin (verified owner)

    The first thing that struck was there was a lightness on the nose which was all about zesty citrus fruits, mainly lemon and limes, linger for long enough there was a slight whiff of pears. Taste wise, again those citrus fruits were prominent but there was a lovely fresh and bright streak of minerality. Along with a medium acidity what struck me was a hint of creaminess and the finish was nice and long, lovely wine, enjoyed by all who tasted it
