Pla De Gates Blanc 2021 (Spain: Emporda) (ID# 4080)

Name Pla De Gates Blanc 2021 (ID# 4080)
Varietal Garnatxa Blanca & Garnaxta Gris
Region Spain: Emporda
Notes "A blend of Lledoner Blanc and Roig (Grenache Blanc and Gris) that Anna Espelt grows in her Mas Marés vineyard. Anna has discovered that they really shine closer to the Mediterranean, where nearly constant winds result in smaller clusters, berries, thicker skins, and fresher acidity. Pla de Gates is cooled overnight after harvesting by hand, is partially destemmed, and sees a short maceration before a long gentle pressing to capture all the aromatic and phenolic potential of these two varieties." (Winemaker's Notes)
