Fruit-driven, gently mineral and even petrol-like after some years in the bottle, this white wine from Priorat is excellent with fish recipes, white meat dishes and creamy cheeses.
It is advisable to decant this white wine aged in oak some time before drinking.
The white wine Mas d’en Compte Blanc is deep straw with some amber glints.
This blend of White Grenache, Picapoll Blanc, Xarel·lo and Macabeo is intricate, elegant and ever-evolving. Ripe white fruit and bone fruit, with some smokey, spicy and honey remembrances. The mineral background becomes more noticeable as time passes.
