White Wine Rita 2019
Availability: In stock
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.
Meticulously harvested, the grapes were macerated and fermented with indigenous yeasts in used French oak barrels.
After that, Rita 2019 from the DO Montsant was aged on its lees for 5 months.
The production of the 2019 vintage of this white wine from Montsant totalized only 1,000 bottles.
The white wine Rita has a pale, clean yellow colour with some greenish tinges.
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.
This white wine from Vinyes Domènech is 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.
