Crushed & Cured
Perelada, Només Garnatxa Blanca, DO Empordà, 2021
Pale yellow with some green reflections. Aromatically this is so very intense. Fresh fruits, aromatic herbs and touches of anise. In the mouth it is well balanced, fresh, enveloping. This is a complex, long lasting wine, nice, with a marked varietal personality.
The vineyards are approximately 50m above sea level, with an average vine age of over 52 years. The grape selection process and destemming is done manually in vineyard, and then pressed in the winery with a pneumatic press, without skin contact or pre-fermentation maceration.
