Cerro Amurdi blanco
100 % Garnacha Blanca
|Confused? No reason to be. Here’s Luis’ idea: A skin macerated white wine is a white wine. But it has a deeper color… more orange than green. Here is Luis’ version of an orange wine.
The Garnacha Blanca is grown in Cáseda, in the province of Navarre. The 20 years old vines are located at 450m and the plot is harvest manually. As always, the viticulture uses organic practices and no synthetic herbicides or pesticides are used.
Like his other wines, the winemaking is done with minimal intervention. Here, the recipe is aligned with the winemaking of a red wine. After a cold maceration of 4 days, the fermentation lasts about 16 days and the wine is left for 4 months in stainless steel on the skins followed by one year in old 500 litre barrels. Less than 700 bottles were made.
