2017 Oriol Artigas "La Rumbera" Blanco, 750ml

Availability: In stock (9)

A dynamic white from the Alella region just north of Barcelona. Oriol Artigas is a leader in the movement to preserve this region and its old plantings of native Catalan varieties. This cuvee is a blend of Pansa Blanca and Garnatxa Blanca. All spontaneous fermentation, no working the must, no filtering and co-fermented by vineyard site.

From the mouth of the importer (Jose Pastor):

"La Rumbera is comprised of 80% Pansa Blanca and 20% Garnatxa Blanca from 5 southeast and northwest-facing parcels planted on granitic soils. The wine is fermented with wild yeasts in 80% stainless steel and 20% old 300 liter barrels, with 2 hours to 2 days skin contact, depending on the maturation of the grape. The wine is then raised on the lees in steel vat for 6 months before being bottled without fining or filtration. This is a white wine that combines power and delicacy with a distinct marine character, making it ideal to pair with a wide variety of seafood, especially grilled head-on prawns."
