Blanc de Closos

17,50

Fresh and balanced personality

Since the old days, the region’s steep slopes, locally known as costers, have been planted with white varieties mixed in among the predominant Garnacha and Samsó (Carignan) vines. This practice, meant to balance production, acidity and alcohol, has been preserved and is a valued element of the wine heritage in Priorat. In the closos (small vineyards) around Bellmunt, among the old red grape vines, we can still find some white varieties. We use them to make this Blanc de Closos. It is a penetrating and powerful wine, with an austere colour that reminds us of the cool temperatures we have at night during the grape ripening period.

TASTING NOTES

Fresh, citrus aromas typically found in Priorat’s Garnacha Blanca. Fruit skin, aromatic herbs and a light stone fruit (peach) notes. Juicy and lively on the palate, with marked minerality. Persistent and with good volume. The must gains structure as it is macerated with the skins. We like to say it represents Priorat: the balance between nature and tradition.
