White Wine Eòlic 2021
Availability: In stock
Produced by Eloi Milà and Josep Montserrat, the two Catalan winemakers at the head of Àrid Vins, Eòlic is a varietal Spanish white wine from Penedès made from Sauvignon Blanc.
This interesting organic white wine is produced from vineyards located at an altitude over 800 metres above sea level near the town of Pontons, in the highest area of Penedès. This is a Mediterranean terroir with little rain, conveniently tempered by the coolnes that goes with altitude.
Meticulously vinified, Eòlic 2021 was aged on its lees in stainless steel tanks for about 3 months in order to extract aromas and colour.
This varietal white wine from Penedès combines freshness and Mediterranean flair in a most engaging way.
The white wine Eòlic is medium straw with some greenish and steely tinges.
This organic Sauvignon Blanc is very aromatic. Aromas of jasmine, orange blossom and grapefruit, with notes of freshly cut grass and boxwood. Well-balanced and characterful.
A note of freshness that gives way to notes of yeasts, toasted bread, aromatic herbs and white fruit. Acidity is remarkable and brings a wonderful tension to this wine of the Àrid vins winery. Clean, medium-long finish that brings back some herbal remembrances.
|Our personal opinion||
A Mediterranean Sauvignon Blanc from high-altitude vineyards, Eòlic 2021 is not entirely unlike the legendary Sauvignons from Pouilly Fumé and Sancerre.
