Overview

The Garnatxa Blanca from Espelt comes from their highest elevation vineyard, Rabós, tucked in the Alberes Nature Reserve Area. These are the oldest vines on the property with centenary Garnatxa Negra and Carinyena as well as spritely 50 year-old Garnatxa Blanca vines on sandy slate and granite soils. The richness of the fruit is complimented by aging in second- and third-fill French oak barrels.
