White Wine Blanc D'Orto 2020
Availability: In stock
The white wine Blanc d'Orto is produced by oenologist Joan Asens, one of Spain's top winemakers.
The grapes comes from 5 little parcels, with a total surface of less than 2 hectares, scattered across the towns of El Masroig and Torre Fontaubella. The 40 to 60-year-old vines grown in limestone, sand and gravel soils.
Harvested and carefully destemmed, the grapes were vinified in stainless steel tanks. After a brief period of skin maceration, Blanc d'Orto 2020 was fermented and subsequently aged on its lees for 6 months.
Prior to bottling, this white wine from Montsant was delicately filtered.
Pair with oily fish recipes, white meat and creamy cheeses.
The white wine Blanc d'Orto is medium yellow with some steely and greenish tinges.
Expressive and ever-evolving, this White Grenache carries aromas of ripe white fruit, white flowers, sweet spices and butter. In the background there are hints of pastry, dry fruit and aromatic herbs.
Savoury and unctuous, this wine from Orto Vins is smooth-bodied and delicately textured. Mediterranean shrubland, subtle mineral overtones and flavours of apples, lime, pastry and dry fruit. Substantial volume, great freshness and tense acidity. Long, complex finish.
|Our personal opinion||
