Overview

The Garnatxa Blanca in the La Serra vineyard was planted around the turn of the last century. These low-yielding vines are planted on chalky and sandy limestone soils. Fermented and aged in foudre, as opposed to the old vine Garnatxa from Benufet that is aged in concrete, La Serra is a denser expression of the variety but it maintains the same salty minerality of its terroir.
