Vd’O 8 – White Grenache in Alluvial and Pebbles
Grape varieties: 100% White Grenache
This wine is continuing the Vd’O collection “Varietals de terrer”. It has been made with selected grapes from the old plot Camí de Mollet planted in 1924, grown on a gravelly/sand soil.
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 during 12 hours. The wine ferments in 500l French oak barrels at low temperature, remaining in contact with its lees for 8 months.
Golden yellow color.
Fragant and complex bouquet: pear. white flowers, fresh mediterranean herbs and spices like anise.
Butter volume and creamy palate with equilibration. We found again the anise flavor. A white Grenache fresh, mineral and with a good acidity that arrives to the maximum expression.
