100% Garnacha Blanca 2000 bts produced. 300 bts imported. 100% stainless fermented and aged with stirred lees. This stunning new bottling from Xavi & Rosa Clua is produced from 50 year old vines (planted in 1962). The nose shows hints of apricots and almonds with some floral notes. In the mouth, there is marvelous length, vibrant acidity and excellent mineral texture. Very fresh, but deep and poised, this is probably the best white that this winery has every produced. Very limited.
