Exedra Garnatxa Blanca Amphora Bodegas Puiggros 2022


ABV 14.5%

Tasting Notes
This delicious organic Garnacha Blanca from Odena, Catalunya is grown in vineyards in mountainous terrain at an altitude of 650 meters above sea level. Made from 80 year old vines which give fantastic intensity from more concentrated grapes. The wine is kept on skins for a short maceration giving some added texture and aromatics. Then a cool fermentation in steel to preserve defined fruit aromas with ageing in amphora for 6 months, an ancient pottery vessel covered with beeswax. The wine is pale yellow in colour and has an aromatic nose with notes of peach and pineapple accompanied by fresh and Mediterranean aromatic herbs. The palate also has hints toasted nuts, tiger nuts and bee wax, with a long luscious and slightly bitter finish.

Pairs well with Fish, shellfish, crustaceans and white meat.

Autonomous region of eastern Mediterranean Spain, responsible for most Cava and the prestige table wines of Penedes and Priorat. The small region of Priorat has just 1700 hectares under vine, producing some of the most sought after wines from Spain. The vines benefit from a hot continental climate and are planted on an exceptional rich schist terroir, which contribute to the much acclaimed `mineral rich character` of the wines.

Since 1843 the family have been making wines in Odena, near Barcelona, these never got to the international market being consumed locally. In 2008 they redesigned the business with the aim of creating high quality wines that reflect the `terroir` of Catalunya. Bodegas Puiggros entirely use native vines of the region and implement the use amphora to combine traditional practises with modern winemaking techniques.
