After a two year gap, the Celler de Capçanes winery presents the 2018 vintage of Mas Picosa Blanc de Negres.
A Blanc de Noirs, this Spanish white wine is a single varietal Grenache coming from vines 10 to 25 years of age belonging to the DO Montsant, located at an average altitude of 300 metres above sea level.
Harvested in late August and early September, once in the cellar the grapes of this white wine from Montsant were pressed, and after a short maceration they were separated from the skins. Fermentation took place in stainless steel tanks. Once the process was finished, the wine was cold stabilized and bottled.
Drink Mas Picosa Blanc de Negres 2018 through 2021.
30,000 bottles produced.
The wine Mas Picosa Blanc de Negres has a very bright, clean onion-skin colour with some steely tinges.
This Grenache vinified as a Blanc de Noirs suggests some delicate aromas of red berries, citrus and aromatic herbs over a mineral and floral background.
Easy and pleasant, this wine by Celler de Capçanes carries some notes of wild beries, garrigue and flowers. Delicately unctuous, this Blanc de Noirs from Montsant has a pleasant acidity and a medium finish.
