Pere Guardiola, Catalunya, 2011 Floresta, D.O. Empordà, 50% Macabeo, 42% Chardonnay, 8% Muscat
2007 Floresta Blanco, D.O. Empordà, Pere Guardiola
From estate grown grapes in the foothills north of Figueres in Northern Catalonia, this wine is produced from 50% Macabeo, 42% Chardonnay & 8% Muscat. The cool Mediterranean breezes make for ideal ripening conditions in this area. Warm days and cool nights are essential for producing whites that have richness and balance. This wine is a winner as it has both. Rich, ripe floral notes are backed up with crisp acidity and good minerality and this year’s addition of Muscat makes it all the more enticing. This is very classy stuff for not much money!
