Vernatxa de Frisach 2017
Organic white wine from Terra Alta made from White Grenache aged for 6 months in oak barrels
Availability: In stock
Besides being certified organic, the company is digging into the ancestral wine traditions of the region in order to produce some pure, unadulterated wines true to the spirit of the land.
A single varietal White Grenache, this Spanish white wine is made from grapes coming a single estate, Finca La Quart, with soils composed of sand, clay and limestone.
After the harvest, the grapes were fermented and macerated with the skins, the stems and the seeds. This old local technique results in what in Catalan is called a "brisat" white wine.
After that, Vernatxa de Frisach 2017 was racked and transferred into 500-litre French oak barrels, where it was aged for 6 months. The wine was not filtered, clarified or stabilized before its bottling.
Drink this Vernatxa Blanca (the local name of White Grenache) until 2022. Aerate some time before drinking.
The white wine Vernatxa de Frisach has an intense yellow colour with some golden tinges.
Pleasantly raw and delightfully wild, this organic white wine combines aromas of tropical fruit, citrus, and fennel, intertwined with aromas of flowers and some creamy, earthy and herbal nuances. This White Grenache is very expressive.
Fresh, characteristic and terroir-orientated. This white wine from Terra Alta is, above all, tremendously alive, like all of the wines produced by this winery. Ripe yellow fruit, quince, some notions of aniseed and butter and remembrances of Mediterranean underbrush. This wine by Celler Frisach has a lively acidity and a long finish with some enticing mineral notes.
