Overview

When we first tasted Trementinaire we were sure it was a Vermut for its aromatic intensity that evoked dried orange peel and Mediterranean herbs followed by vibrant acidity and savory finish. That such a seductive and wildly exotic wine could be coaxed from the skins of Garnatxa Blanca had us reconsidering this workhorse Mediterranean white. But let’s face it, if anyone were to discover a fascinating new facet to Garnatxa Blanca, it would be Rafa and Nuria.
