Les Sorts Blanc
2009 Grenache Blanc
||Formed by the decomposition of the granite mass of Falset, mixed with tertiary age limestone deposits.
||Over 40 years old with other vines 65.
||First week of September 2009.
This wine is 100% White Grenache. The grapes were selected from the oldest vineyards some of them 65 years old. Fermentation started in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks and continued under temperature controlled oak barrels.
The wine was aged for six months in new French oak barrels, with regular batonnage.
||Clear, bright light lemon color.
||Light tropical fruits and melon, a lot of flowery, spices from the oak aging and toasty lees on the finish. Very interesting nose.
||Mid bodied but fresh, persistent, ripe and typical notes for a white Grenache. Nicely balanced and structured, with a long finish, with citrucy notes in the background.
||This is a richer style of white wine that shows intensity and a good grip on the palate. Serve chilled with rich creamy dishes or even spicy Thai dishes.
