White Wine Rita 2021
Availability: Out of stock
Scarce, sought-after 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 vines 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 2021 from DO Montsant was aged on its lees for 5 months.
Elegant and nuanced, this varietal White Grenache is definitely worth trying.
The white wine Rita is pale yellow with some greenish tinges.
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.
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.
