INFORMATION OF INTEREST Blanc de Gresa 2018

TASTING NOTE

Colour: Pale yellow, clear, clean, transparent, bright.

Aroma: Complex wine, with high aromatic power, it is frank, interesting, the primary aromas are intertwined with the tertiary ones due to its aging in barrels. Reminiscences of ripe peach, fuji apple, green tea, light roasts, vanilla, smoky notes, quality wood.

Taste: Tasty, very well structured, long journey in the gustatory phase, long and persistent, we highlight the sensation of unctuousness, glyceric, fatty, well balanced ( acidity-aging-barrel ), a pleasant silky sensation, light notes of dried fruit, wood very well integrated along with the fruit appreciations and light minerality.

MATCHING

With level gastronomy, very pure and fresh fish and seafood, iron, oven, steamed. And due to its gustatory strength, you can taste and enjoy a magnificent union with Llobregant rice, grilled shrimp from the coast of the Costa Brava ( Roses and Palamos ).
