Product Description
Details

The 2019 vintage of Bàrbara Fores Blanc is a single varietal White Grenache, the main variety of the DO Terra Alta, Catalonia's southernmost wine region.

It is produced from non-irrigated vineyards located near Gandesa, the capital city of the region.

Harvested by hand, this white wine from Terra Alta by Bàrbara Forés was vinified in a traditional manner.

Before fermentation, it was cold-soaked for 24 hours. After that, alcoholic fermentation ot this varietal White Grenache took place in stainless steel tanks for over a period of 15 days.

In order to preserve its varietal character, Bàrbara Forés Blanc 2019 was not aged in oak.

Appearance

The white wine Bàrbara Forés Blanc has a clean, bright, pale golden colour with some steely tinges.

Nose

Intense notes of lemon, pomelo, pineapple and banana. On the background of this White Grenache from Terra Alta we perceive remembrances of aromatic herbs, white flowers, aniseed and vegetables. Absence of wooden aromas is most welcome.

Palate

With a fresh and extremely pleasant entrance, this white wine from Celler Bàrbara Forés has a creamy texture and a silky body. Crisp acidity and great freshness. Notes of citrus, freshly cut grass, aniseed and almond blossom. Long, slightly bitter finish.

Our personal opinion

A fresh and substantial white, Bàrbara Forés Blanc 2019 combines excellently with white meat, rice casseroles and creamy cheeses.
