The wine Ónra Blanc by Celler La Gravera is produced from 11.3 hectares of vineyards spread out over 14 different plots. Belonging to the Costers del Segre DO, the climate of the region is harsh, with very cold winters and extremely hot summers with long drought periods.
The 2018 vintage of this Spanish white wine includes again White grenache and Sauvignon Blanc, this time nuanced by a touch of Chenin Blanc. The winery currently follows biodynamic practices in all of its farming procedures.
Meticulously harvested, the grapes were brought to the cellar, selected twice, gently crushed, and cold-macerated for about 10 hours.
Then they were gently pressed, and the wine must was drawn off and transferred into stainless steel tanks, where each grape variety was separately fermented at a low temperature for over a period of 14 days.
Finally, Ónra Blanc 2018 was aged for 5 months on its lees in those same tanks prior to its bottling with periodic stirrings.
Drink this white wine from Costers del Segre over the next 3 years.
The wine Onra Blanc has a straw yellow colour with greenish tinges.
Remembrances of Granny Smith apples, bananas and pineapples. On the background of this blend of White Grenache, Sauvignon Blanc and Chenin Blanc there are some notes of fennel, white flowers and pastry.
This organic and biodynamic white wine has a fresh entrance on the palate, showing flavours of pears, apples and aromatic herbs. Some tropical hints, a touch of spices and some mineral undertones. This white wine by Celler La Gravera has a good acidity and medium, fruity finish.
