COLORS Blanc 2017
Grapes: macabeu, chardonnay i petit manseng
Denomination of Origin Costers del Segre, Les Garrigues.
White wine aged on its own fine lees providing an unctuous texture and highlight acidity and freshness of its varietals (Petit Manseng).
Tropical and exotic fruits remark this assemblage, always perfectly accomplished by the salty and mineral notes of Macabeo.
Mountain Viticulture located at an altitude between 700 and 800 metres, nestling at the foothills of the Serra de la Llena, natural border within Priorat region and Serra del Montsant, an area in contrast between Mediterranean and Continental climate, with scarce rain average and always soft winds that guarantee healthy conditions on the vineyards. Soil structure predominates with great water retention, rich in gravels and a marly texture optimum for quality viticulture. The elevation of our vineyards and the temperature contrast in Garrigues region impacts on the grape skin thickness, encouraging the concentration of anthocyanins and tannins whilst enhancing acidity and freshness.
