ALTES HERENCIA 2012 GARNATXA BLANCA

Herencia AltÚs Garnatxa Blanca is born in a Mediterranean climate yet affected by a marked continental influence bringing cold winters. A range of Garnatxa vines, some very old, others younger, were used to achieve complexity and balance. Of key importance was picking the grapes before the natural acidity was lost. The wines spend a further 2 months on fine lees to gain texture and complexity. The resultant wine is a joy to taste: lush, lean and sexy, balanced and beautiful, athletic and gorgeous.

The nose is filled with fruit and florals: lychee, mixed stonefruits, fields of wildflowers, orange blossom. A streak of river water minerality courses throughout. The palate swells with lush viscosity that is cleaned up by acidity, uplifted and brightened. Tastes of white peach, nectarine, apricot and lychee merge with sea salt and nougat on the midpalate. Hints of hazelnut, orange pith and mandarin orange reverberate as the finish lasts and lasts. This is 100% Garnatxa Blanca (white Grenache) that is perfect for the Dog Days of summer: it's very tasty, quite refreshing and drinks way out of its niveau!
