Vineyards and vinification

Old white Garnatxa vineyards grown in organic agriculture and located in Batea, municipality of Terra Alta, in the province of Tarragona. Batea has strong temperature variations with cold winters and hot, dry summers. The little rain and low yields give very special grapes with excellent ripeness. The soils are generally frank-clayey limestones of very low fertility. Once harvested, the grapes are peeled and pressed. The must is stored in stainless steel tanks for 24 hours. The next day, the clean must is separated and fermented in stainless steel tanks. The duration of fermentation is between 18 and 20 days at a temperature of about 14-15ºC. Once fermented, the lees are mixed once a week to obtain softness and fat. The duration of aging with lees for the 2019 harvest has been 5 months.

Tasting notes

The varietal aroma is a mixture of fruity notes (yellow peach, ripe apple, apricot kernels) and tropical fruits (pineapple, lychee, papaya). We find sweet nuances: quince, honey. The mouthfeel is wide, structured, fresh, with nerve thanks to its citrus touches. At the end of the mouth it highlights the presence of ripe fruit and the long aftertaste. We want a fresh Garnatxa Blanca, easy to drink in the summer months and with a lot of personality.

Recommended consumption temperature 6-8ºC.
