Product Description
Details

Produced by indefatigable winemaker Josep Grau, Granit is an appealing Spanish white wine from the DO Montsant.

This single varietal White Grenache is made from three organically grown vineyards with high wind exposure, planted in granite soils and located at an altitude over 450 metres above sea level.

Once in the cellar, the grapes were gently pressed for 7 hours. After that, this white wine from Montsant was fermented and then aged for 8 months in 2,000-litre Austrian and German oak vats.

We suggest that you aerate Granit 2018 30 minutes before drinking.

Presumably, this White Grenache from Montsant will improve after some time in the bottle.

Appearance

The white wine Granit has a pale yellow colour with some greenish glints.

Nose

This White Grenache is rich and complex. The granite soils show in some clean-cut, crisp mineral notes which contrast with those from the neighbouring Priorat, darker and more expansive. Fruit is of great quality, ripe but not juicy, with some spicy nuances, remembrances of flowers, and Mediterranean garrigue.

Palate

Bold and palate-coating, this Montsant white wine manages to be gentle and extremely fresh due to a first-class acidity. As usual with the wines produced by Josep Grau, this is more about subtlety and nuance than sheer power. Clean, pure and smooth-textured, it has a long finish with remembrances of underbrush, white fruit, and some earthy and mineral undertones.

Our personal opinion

Elegant, suggestive and fresh, Granit 2018 by Josep Grau is an excellent take on White Grenache.

Very pure and complex. It has texture, minerality and a caressing texture. Fascinating. Review by ref (Posted on 13/09/2017)
