This organic white wine comes from the southern Catalonian region of Terra Alta.
It is varietal White Grenache, a grape known in the region as Vernatxa Blanca.
An interesting feature about this L'Abrunet de Frisach Blanc is that the grapes were harvested twice.
The first harvest took place when the grapes had reached an alcohol level of 11.5%. The second one was carried out when the alcohol percentage was of 14%.
Thus, the first batch of grapes brought acidity and freshness to the wine, while the second batch provided body and volume.
After the harvest, this wine by Celler Frisach was traditionally vinified.
Prior to its bottling, L'Abrunet de Frisach Blanc 2017 was not filtered or stabilized.
The white wine L'Abrunet de Frisach Blanc has a bright, pale yellow colour with some golden tinges.
This young organic white wine from Terra Alta displays fresh aromas of tropical fruit, citrus, aromatic herbs, aniseed and flowers over a mineral background.
This wine made from White Grenache by Celler Frisach is well balanced and tremendously enjoyable, with a great acidity and a delicately bitter character. Citrus, white flowers, herbs and touches of dry earth. Clean, medium finish.
