Crushed and Cured

Celler de Capçanes, Cap Sentit Orange, DO Catalunya, Spain, 2022


A delicious wine made from 100% Garnacha Blanca grapes with an intense golden colour and amber reflections due to the time on skins; the nose is reminiscent of ripe peach, apricot and floral notes, whilst the palate displays the textural appeal of the variety, orchard fruit characters and perfectly poised acidity.

Celler de Capçanes has established itself as one of the most engaging and outward looking wineries in the area. A combination of diverse vineyard plots and old vine Garnacha is captured and eloquently expressed in all their wines.

As an orange wine, it is produced with extended skin contact during vinification of the white grapes, more usual in red wine making. After a 15 day maceration on the skins, fermentation is carried out at a controlled temperature (16ºC) in stainless steel tanks and lightly pressed afterwards. The wine is then aged on its lees before a light fining prior to bottling.
