Product Description
Details

Produced by Celler Masroig, Les Sorts is a single varietal White Grenache made from old vines scattered over several plots belonging to the DO Montsant.

Fermented in 300-litre French oak barrels with periodic stirrings of the lees, this Spanish white wine was then aged on its lees in the barrels for 6 months 

An excellent value, Les Sorts Blanc 2018 is a very expressive White Grenache from Montsant.

Additional Information
Appearance

The white wine Les Sorts Blanc has a clean, bright, straw yellow color with golden tinges.

Nose

This varietal white wine from Montsant is rich and multi-layered. Notes of white flowers combined with lactic notions and aromas of honey. The oak ageing shows in mild nuances of toast and spices over a fresh balsamic background.

Palate

With a silky entrance onto the palate, this white wine from Celler Masroig shows an excellent balance between the notes of fruit, spices and flowers, nuanced by a very original hint of white chocolate. Excellent acidity and nice finish, long and persistent, with a creamy aftertaste.

Our personal opinion

We paired Les Sorts Blanc 2018 with a salmon papillote with fennel potatoes and olives. A most excellent combination!
