Produced in Priorat, Les Brugueres is a remarkably original Spanish white wine made in a land famed for its bold red wines.
A single varietal White Grenache, it is made from grapes grown in a single plot.
The La Creueta estate comprises 3 hectares of vineyards that were planted in 1980 in the slate (llicorella) soils which are characteristic of the region.
After the harvest, the grapes were cold macerated for 3-4 days prior to fermentation, which took place in stainless steel tanks.
Then this wine produced by the Conreria de Scala Dei was aged for 5 months on its lees.
Finally, Les Brugueres 2017 was clarified before its bottling.
Decant this White Grenache from Priorat 30 minutes before drinking.
Drink until 2023.
The white wine Les Brugueres has a very bright, clean straw yellow colour with some golden tinges.
Elegant notes of white flowers, aniseed, white pepper, pineapple, and bone fruit over a fresh, rich mineral background, typical of a White Grenache from Priorat.
Produced by Conreria d'Scala Dei, the wine is creamy and savoury, with a great balance and a remarkable acidity. Dry fruit, white fruit, spices, citrus, some mineral remembrances and a floral touch. Long, fruity finish.
