Producer: iTant Vins
DO: Terra Alta
Type: White wine
Grape: White Garnacha
Elegant white wine with stone fruit and floral aromas against a light citrus background. Fresh and silky smooth on the palate, the wine has a medium to long finish.
Fish, seafood and light meals like sushi and salads.
The grapes are carefully selected and harvested by hand in the vineyard with any sub-standard fruit discarded. To maintain quality, the grapes are kept chilled at 10ºC on their way to the winery where they are de-stemming and undergo a gentle pressing before temperature-controlled fermentation at 15ºC in ie 10,000-litre stainless steel tanks to lock in aromas. Once fermentation is finished the wine is fined and filtered before it is bottled.
About the producer
