Product Description
Details

Sought-after, scarce and confidential, Rita is the flagship white wine of the Vinyes Domènech winery.

A varietal White Grenache, this Spanish white wine is crafted from over 50-year-old 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 white wine from Montsant

Meticulously harvested, the grapes were macerated and fermented with indigenous yeasts in used French oak barrels.

After that, Rita 2020 from DO Montsant was aged on its lees for 5 months.

Elegant and nuanced, this varietal White Grenache is definitely worth trying.

Nose

The nose is of this White Grenache is pure and captivating. 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.

Palate

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, ever-evolving finish.

Our personal opinion

The white wine Rita 2020 has a kind of understated sophistication that we find charming.

Rita
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.
