Details

An exceedingly interesting Spanish white wine, Rita is produced by the Vinyes Domènech winery.

A single varietal White Grenache, the grapes come from vines over 50 years old farmed followed the principles of organic and biodynamic agriculture.

The plots have different soil compositions and sun orientations, a fact that gives a remarkable complexity wine. They were separately harvested, and then the grapes were meticulously vinified.

After that, this wine from Montsant was aged 4 months in French oak barrels.

A limited-production wine with a complex, elegant character, this white wine from Montsant will improve in the bottle for the next 5-6 years.

Decant Rita 2017 30 minutes before drinking.

Additional Information

Appearance

The white wine Rita has a pale, clean yellow colour with some greenish tinges.

Nose

The nose is seductive, pure. Notes of fresh white fruit, combined with some earthy aromas, mineral and earthy undertones and remembrances of flowers and spices, typical of a White Grenache from Montsant.

Palate

This white wine by Vinyes Domènech is suggestive, elegant and original. Palate-coating, with a fresh passage and a silky, smooth body. Delicate, complex notes of white fruit, underpinned by some creamy notions of spices, suggestions of aromatic herbs and some mineral undertones. Very good acidity and a long, uplifting finish.

Our personal opinion

With a limited production of only 800 bottles, Rita 2017 is an exclusive white wine from Montsant with complexity and ageworthiness.

  1. Rita review by Jango on 9/5/2017
    Value

    I find this wine immensely enjoyable. It has a very elegant nose and a velvety palate reminiscent of apples, almonds, herbs, flowers and more things. Chiseled, very well crafted. It will reach its peak in 4-5 years.
