Details

Celler Frisach is one of the most interesting wineries currently working in the southern Catalan region of Terra Alta.

It is run by a young, inquisitive winemaker that has implemented eco-friendly procedures in all of the agricultural practices. The winery is certified organic.

This Spanish white wine is solely made from old White Grenache vineyards coming from a single estate with soils composed of sand, clay and limestone.

After the harvest, the grapes were fermented and macerated with the skins. This process results in what in Catalan is called a "brisat" white wine.

After that, Vernatxa de Frisach 2016 was racked and transferred into 500-litre French oak barrels, where it was aged for 6 months.

This organic white wine was not filtered, clarified or stabilized before its bottling.

Drink until 2023. Decant 30 minutes before drinking.

Additional Information

Appearance

Vernatxa de Frisach has an intense yellow colour with some golden tinges.

 

Nose

This organic white wine from Terra Alta combines aromas of tropical fruit, citrus, and fennel, intertwined with aromas of flowers and some creamy, earthy and herbal nuances.

 

Palate

Fresh, characteristic and terroir-orientated. A varietal White Grenache by Celler Frisach which is, above all, tremendously alive, like the rest of the wines produced by the company. Ripe yellow fruit, quince, some notions of aniseed and butter and remembrances of Mediterranean underbrush. Lively acidity and a long finish with some enticing mineral notes.

 

Our personal opinion

Well-defined and full of personality, Vernatxa de Frisach 2016 seduces from the very start.
