Las Colinas del Ebro, Garnatxa Blanca, Terra Alta, 2019

"This wine’s flavour has been stuck in my brain ever since I first tasted it, and I have resisted the urge to write it up so I could save it as my aperitif white choice for Christmas Day. Slender, herbal, green apple and pear-kissed and mineral-soaked, this is quirky, yet thoroughly engaging. It is also under a tenner!" Matthew Jukes, 40 Best Wines for Christmas, The Daily Mail 14th December 2020

100% white Grenache from clay/limestone vineyards about 500 metres up (Terra Alta = highlands) in Catalonia. Here the altitude brings cool nights; and a dry wind known as el Cierzo keeps the vines healthy, enabling this to be made from organically grown grapes (certified organic and vegan). This latest vintage is the first made using wild ferments too, just giving it a fraction more interest. This has become one of our best regarded sub £10 whites. It’s such a useful all-rounder, light enough to enjoy on its own but also not so fruity that one can’t enjoy it with a wide range of fish and white meat dishes. Grapefruit scented with herbs - rosemary and bay leaf - with attractive texture and a distinct, lightly almondy finish. Now-2021

"I have watched this tasty white Grenache get better and better over the years – this is the first
vintage both organically certified and using wild ferments, unusual qualities for wine under £10. If it came from the southern Rhone just round the curve of the Med it might cost 50% more and be no better!",  Simon Taylor SVS
