Blanc de Gresa
Grape varieties: White Grenache 54%, gray Grenache 23% and white Carignan 23%.
All three grape varieties come from two old bush vines plots -90 and 110 years old- grown on a gravelly/sandy soil. The plots are located in the most flat in the center of the region slightly titled towards the southeast.
Harvest & vinification process
The grapes are picked by hand and collected into small crates of 10 kg. A period of cold soak in a fridge (at 2-4ºC) followed by skin contact maceration.
White Grenache and gray Grenache are fermented and aged for 8 months in 500 liter French oak barrels, 50% new, together with their lees.
White Carignan is vinified in stainless steal at controlled low temperature remaining on its lees until blend.
Our aim is to achieve the best expression of each grape.
