Mario Rovira Viticultor - La Flamenca
We're delighted to introduce La Flamenca, a beautiful white wine from the little-known Catalan appellation of Alella, to the north of Barcelona. 75% Pansa Blanca (Xarello) and 25% Macabeu from the tiny 35-year-old Can Ballus parcel, an east-facing slope with sandy soils over granite, slate and quartz. 8-day skin contact and fermentation in stainless steel vats, and 5-month aging in a mix of a 500L old manzanilla (sherry) barrel, astainless steel tank and a ceramic egg.
Get ready for some fine, elegant oxidatiom, salinity, you can almost feel the sea breeze. Citrus notes, cool minerality, herb and fennel seeds, and a nice medium acidity.
