Youthful white wine with pale lemon hue. Enticingly aromatic with hints of yellow apple, Bosc pear and tropical pineapple combine with floral notes of acacia and herbal notes of wild thyme and rosemary. Round in mouth with well-balanced acidity and lingering finish.
Raig de Raïm (The Gleam of the Grape, in Catalan) is a 100% native varietal estate-bottled Garnacha Blanca made by Celler Vinos Piñol from the region of Terra Alta, located south of Barcelona. Terra Alta's high elevation vineyards coupled with Piñol's organic viticulture produces a wine that communicates the freshness of this rewarding region, relatively unknown until now. The story of Cellar Vinos Piñol mirrors the ascendance of Spanish wines in world markets over the past ten years, a story of how a reverence for old, treasured vineyards and the best family traditions have been combined with new winemaking methods to make the finest wines possible. Similar to Yecla and Vinos de Madrid, Terra Alta is one of Spain's up-and-coming wine regions with an identity built on exciting projects and progressive innovation. Juanjo G. Piñol and Cristina Borrull are the winemakers. Juanjo's mother Josefina remains in charge of the family cellar.click here for more information.
