Grapes: 100% Garnacha Blanca
2015 is the first vintage of this rare, white wine from denomination of origin Campo de Borja. It is produced from the la Blasa vineyard, the only plot of Garnacha Blanca (white-skinned Grenache) the winery owns. The vines are 15 years old and grow in clay-loam soils with fewer stones than the vineyards for the red wines. Grapes were harvested on September 21, 2015. The grapes go direct to press upon arrival to the winery and are protected from oxidation with a blanket of CO2 gas while pressing. The wine was fermented in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks and aged on fine lees for nearly 6 months prior to bottling.
Light bright yellow. Meyer lemon, melon and a hint of quinine on the nose, along with hints of tarragon and white pepper in the background. Supple and dry in the mouth, offering yellow plum and tangerine flavors supported by a spine of tangy acidity. Finishes with good tenacity, an echo of quinine and a faint hint of honeysuckle. 2017 - 2019 New Releases from Spain Part 1
