Product Description
Details

This is a remarkably original Spanish white wine produced in northern Catalonia, on the southern border of the Pyrenees.

Crafted by the Martí Fabra winery, Masia Carreras Blanc is made from a unique blend of five traditional Empordà varities.

Namely, the composition includes White Carignan, Grey Carignan (a variety different from both the red and the white ones), White Grenache, Grey Grenache and Picapoll, all of them planted in slate, strongly acid soils constantly swept by Tramuntana, the harsh northern wind typical of the Catalonian-French borderland.

After a careful vinification, this white wine from L'Empordà was aged for 12 months in French oak barrels.

This one-of-a-kind wine will improve considerably over the next years.

Decant Masia Carreras Blanc 2017 a minimum of 30 minutes before drinking.

Additional Information
Appearance

The wine Masia Carreras Blanc has a clean, bright golden colour with some steely tinges.

Nose

This original white wine from L'Empordà is very complex, but it opens quite tight. Seductive notes of lavender, laurel and rosemary that combine with subtle notions of toast, spices, honey and flowers. After a while, this blanc de noirs wine displays another aromatic layer, namely juicy aromas of citrus and white fruit, nicely underpinned by some dark, rich mineral remembrances.

Palate

Elegant, savoury and complex, this white wine from the Martí Fabra winery is nevertheless still in the making. Intense, fresh notes of citrus, flowers and white fruit, underpinned by some wild herbs and a mineral-earthy layer. Very good acidity, deep mineral undertones and long, rich finish.

Our personal opinion

Rather unique, Masia Carreras Blanc 2017 is an immensely enjoyable, age-worthy white from L'Empordà.

Like a great white wine from the Rhône, but this Masia Carreras costs three times less. Very dry, earthy and mineral, remarkably complex. Review by Hoffmann (Posted on 16/01/2018)
