Vites Veteres, white

DOQ Priorat

 

There is evidence of projects that have earned, year after year, a high credibility among our friends-clients thanks to the good working relationship Marià Bigordà, father and son, have had with Joan Sangenís since 1997. We now offer the opportunity to enjoy an elegant white wine with a lot of structure. In an area of “awarded and qualified” black wines, we have produced a white wine from over 30 year old pansal and piquepoul vines, varieties that are hardly ever grown in Priorat. We take this opportunity to make a different and innovative product.

CHARACTERISTICS

  • Vines with more than 30 years planted in calcareous clay soil with patches that contain a lot of grey and ferric slate. Hand-picked with a careful sanitary selection, from 18-20 September.
  • Pansal is fermented and aged in medium toast French oak barrels of 500 L, which doesn’t affect the flavour.
  • Picapoll is macerated for a day, the saignée method is applied and then it is fermented in a stainless steel tank where the temperature is controlled. It is pumped over two times a day.
  • A medium-bodied white wine with a good balance between aroma and taste. Balsamic, tropical and mature aromas. The optimum tears of wine exhibit a good density and fullness that highlight the mix of mineral and fruity sensations.
