This Garnacha Blanca is a delightful fuller-bodied white with a lot of flavor and depth for the price. It comes from the Edetaria estate in the gorgeous southern Catalonian region of Terra Alta (highland), which encompasses foothills and valleys on the inland side of the small mountain range that separates them from the Mediterranean Sea. The climate here is perfect for richly flavored but vibrant Garnachas, and even better, Edetaria uses organically farmed 60-year-old vines for this wine, which can create wines of additional depth and complexity. They ferment and age the wine for 8 months in medium-sized French oak, which complements the fruit beautifully with spice notes and a touch of soft roundness in the texture to complement the vibrant, mineral acidity. There's a distinctive 'hydrocarbon' note, as winery describes it, which appears in many great Rieslings, and is related to the appetizing saline and smoked almond notes in James Suckling's description. Following the ripe yellow fruits like golden apple, pineapple, and lemon, the finish has a gentle nectarine skin note. Try a bottle and taste the dramatic Terra Alta landscape in liquid form!

JAMES SUCKLING 93 POINTS - – "Dried apple, grilled pineapple, salted lemon, smoked almond, clove and chamomile on the nose. It’s full-bodied with bright acidity and a concentrated, flavorful palate. Layered and intense with a spicy finish. Drink now."
