White Wine Remírez de Ganuza Blanco 2017
Availability: In stock
After a thorough research and many tries to obtain the best possible blend, the winery decided to craft Remírez de Ganuza Blanco from a blend of Viura, the most important variety in the region, alongside Malvasía and, interestingly, White Grenache and other white varieties. All of the grapes com from grapevines with an average age of 60 years.
After a meticulous harvest, once in the cellar the grapes were kept cold for 24 hours and carefully selected. Then the free-run juice was fermented in new French oak barrels and subsequently aged for 10 months. During that period, the barrels were perodically rotated to stir the lees. Finally, it was further aged for 10-12 months in the bottle.
Aerate Remírez de Ganuza Blanco 2018 30 minutes before drinking.
Clean and bright, the white wine Remírez de Ganuza has a pale yellow colour with some waxy tinges.
Pleasantly intense, Remírez de Ganuza Blanco smells of bone fruit and white fruit, with some remembrances of pastry, honey and aniseed over a background of aromatic herbs. This blend of Malvasía and Viura, as well as White Grenache and other white varieties also insinuates some elegantly mineral nuances.
Dense, complex, with remarkable potential for growth. The considerable structure of this wine by Remírez de Ganuza is sustained by a solid acidity and a much welcomed freshness. Juicy white fruit, citrus, aniseed, eucaliptus, balsam and herbs come to mind, gracefully parading through the palate. Again, a mineral touch, this time with an intriguingly saline twist. Long finish.
