Product Description
Details

Confidential and very scarce Rita is produced by the Vinyes Domènech winery.

A single varietal White Grenache, the grapes of this Spanish white wine come from vines over 50 years of age farmed following the principles of biodynamic agriculture.

The plots have different soil compositions and sun orientations, a fact that gives a remarkable complexity to this varietal White Grenache. The vines were separately harvested, and meticulously vinified in stainless steel tanks.

After that, this wine from the DO Montsant was aged 4 months in French oak barrels.

A limited-production wine with a complex, elegant character, this white wine from Montsant will drink excellently until at least 2025.

Additional Information
Appearance

The white wine Rita has a pale, clean yellow colour with some greenish tinges.

Nose

The nose is seductive and pure. Notes of bone fruit and lemon pith, combined with some earthy aromas, a nutty spiciness, and a touch of herbs de Provence and dry earth. A most enticing nose this White Grenache from Montsant has.

Palate

This white wine from Vinyes Domènech is suggestive, elegant and original. There is weight and texture, but also a fresh passage, and a silky, smooth body. Delicate, complex notes of peach and lime, underpinned by some creamy notions of spices, suggestions of aromatic herbs, and some mineral undertones. Very good acidity and a long, uplifting finish.

Our personal opinion

With a limited production of only 800 bottles and a real potential from improvement in the bottle, Rita 2018 is an exclusive white wine from Montsant which really deserves a try.

Value
I find this wine immensely enjoyable. It has a very elegant nose and a velvety palate reminiscent of apples, almonds, herbs, flowers and more things. Chiseled, very well crafted. It will reach its peak in 4-5 years. Review by Jango (Posted on 06/09/2017)
