Press Review

"...it's impeccably made, has a vibrant, balanced texture, integrated acidity, and a great finish... a prodigious white"

- Jeb Dunnuck

Overview

The Garnatxa Blanca in the La Serra vineyard was planted at the beginning of the last century. These low-yielding vines are planted on chalky and sandy limestone soils. Due to the age of these vines and the elevage which combines a foudre, a barrel, and an amphora, La Serra is a denser expression of the variety. Still, it maintains the same salty minerality that is the hallmark of its terroir – about 2000 bottles in an average vintage.
