Product Description
Details

The single varietal Tros Blanc is the flagship Spanish white wine of winemaker Alfredo Arribas. It is, so to speak, his Grand Cru.

It is made from a single White Grenache plot -or "Tros" in Catalan - planted with over 80-year-old, low yielding vines located at an altitude of 240 metres, in the very heart of the DO Montsant.

The excellent 2014 vintage of this white wine from Montsant was harvested by hand in little boxes, and subsequently fermented in stainless steel tanks.

After that, this varietal old-vines White Grenache was aged for 10 months in French oak barrels.

A high-end, age-worthy white wine, Tros Blanc 2014 will improve in the bottle over the next 10 years.

Decant 1 hour before drinking.

Additional Information
Additional Information
Appearance

The white wine Tros Blanc has a clean, pale yellow colour with some golden tinges.

Nose

A wine worthy of some serious attention, this White Grenache has a multilayered and nuanced nose. Very pure aromas of white fruit and bone fruit, with a some flecks of white flowers, Mediterranean garrigue, deep menthol and spicy remembrances, and a mineral and earthy note.

Palate

Fresh, bold and full of potential, this white wine by Alfredo Arribas carries loads of information in the process of coming together. Citrus and peaches, a hint of balsam and flowers, a note of underbrush, and remembrances of earth, dry fruit and honey. Great acidity, intrincate texture and remarkable breadth. This Montsant white wine has a long finish with a bitter and toasted note.

Our personal opinion

Suggestive and enticing, Tros Blanc 2014 is the perfect white wine for a special occasion.
