Very aromatic with notes of melon and white fruits on nose. On the palate it is balanced with a medium body and a nice crisp freshness. Pairs well with simple tapas and grilled squid.

There is a young, unoaked white, the 2015 Garnatxa Blanca produced with Garnacha Blanca grapes purchased from grape growers from the village of Batea. The full clusters were pressed and the juice fermented in stainless steel tanks where it was kept with the lees with bâttonage for a couple of months. There is a creamy nose and hints of pollen and honey, nicely open and expressive. It has a soft palate with a nice combination of volume and acidity, with an austere, chalky minerality. Great entry level and very good value. 100,000 bottles were produced and bottled in different lots.

Flint, brine and grapefruit notes mingle in this firm, crisp white. Racy, this is more about acidity than flavor, but is refreshing. Drink now. 7,000 cases made.
