Details

Made from Moscatel de Grano Menudo, Flor d’Albera is a Spanish white wine ("Muscat Blanc à Petits Grains") coming from the northern Catalan region of L'Empordà.

The grapes come from Masia Carreras, an estate planted with old vines grown in high-acid, slate soils which have low levels of organic matter and are constantly swept by a harsh northern wind called Tramuntana.

Meticulously harvested and traditionally vinified in stainless steel tanks, the wine was then aged for 12 months in French oak barrels.

Produced by the Martí Fabra winery, Flor d’Albera 2016 is the perfect companion for fish recipes.

Drink this white wine from L'Empordà over the next 4 years.

Additional Information

Appearance

The wine Flor d'Albera has a clean, bright, wax-yellow colour with some golden tinges.

Nose

This wine by the Martí Fabra winery shows well-balanced notes of vanilla, ripe white grapes, white flowers and white fruit, typical of a Muscat white wine. On the background, hints of spices and some mineral remembrances.

Palate

This Crianza white wine achieves a remarkable equilibrium between freshness, intensity and creaminess. Some smokey notions, a remembrance of withered vegetables, some mineral undertones and remembrances of honey, citrus and royal jelly. This wine from L'Empordà has a great structure and long, persistent finish.

Our personal opinion

A very interesting white wine, Flor d'Albera 2016 will pair marvelously with a lobster rice, one of L'Empordà's many gastronomic wonders.

    Value

    Delicately sweet, but with a touch of acidity that makes it all the more interesting.
