2018 Garnacha Blanca
100% Garnacha Blanca
Handpicked grapes from a dry farmed, certified organic vineyard with 25 year old vines belonging to Mario’s family. The soils are clay and sandstone with some pebbles at 450 meters elevation.
Wild yeast primary fermentation in stainless steel with elevage on the lees with batonnage for three months.
TASTING NOTES |
Garnacha Blanca can tend toward the heavy, oxidative side but with meticulous care in the vineyards (organic, dry farmed), harvesting early and a non-interventional approach in the winery, the Botijo Blanco coaxes out the vibrant citrus side of the varietal. A fresh, elegant surprise for sure and one that will stump even the best blind tasters.

“The lemon-rind and pear-blossom aromas and flavors are delicious. Medium body. Crisp acidity and a flavorful finish.” - James Suckling
