Availability: In stock
Produced by Celler Cal Pla in the heart of Porrera, DOQ Priorat, Cal Pla Blanc is the entry-level Spanish white wine of the winery. In our opinion, it is also the absolute best introduction to the fascinating world of Priorat white wines available on the market..
Harvested in late September, the grapes were first macerated for 24 hours. Then this white wine from Priorat was fermented under controlled temperature in stainless steel tanks.
Once the process was finished, this white wine Cal Pla Blanc 2019 was aged for 5 months on lees in French and American oak barrels.
Pair this white wine aged in oak with white meat, oily fish recipes and soft to medium-aged cheese.
The white wine Cal Pla Blanc is medium straw with a greenish hue.
This blend of Macabeo, White Grenache and Moscatel is gently mineral and spicy, with lively aromas of ripe bone fruit and hints of Mediterranean herbs, puff pastry and citrus.
This white wine of Celler Cal Pla is savoury and gently unctuous, with good freshness and a lively acidity. Ripe white fruit and custard cream, underpinned by some smokey and earthy notes.

Like its red counterpart Cal Pla Negre, the white wine Cal Pla Blanc 2019 is a simply unbeatable value – all the more considering that it comes from Priorat.
