This is the new vintage of Pinyeres Blanc, a single varietal Spanish white wine produced by Celler Masroig.
Traditionally vinified, the grapes were fermented in stainless steel tanks. Then, this white wine from Montsant was aged for 3 months on their lees.
After that, Pinyeres Blanc 2018 rested for a few months in the cellar prior to its release.
The wine Pinyeres Blanc has a very bright, pale yellow colour with some greenish tinges.
This varietal White Grenache from Montsant suggests aromas of fennel, ripe white fruit, dry fruit, flowers and pastry over a mineral background.
Fresh and dry, this white wine from Celler Masroig has a refreshing acidity and a creamy texture. Notes of ripe white fruit, mineral, citrus and balsam. Long, pleasant finish.
