How Good is Terra Remota Ales Blanques White?


Wine Assessment of Marc & Emma Bournazeau Terra Remota Vineyard ‘Ales Blanques’ Garnatxa Blanca, Vi da Taula from Catalonia, Spain

Rating: 87/100

The Ales Blanques cuvée (translate as white wings) by Northern Spain’s Terra Remota vineyard is produced from 100% Garnacha Blanca grapes (or Grenache Blanc).

After fermentation, it was aged on its lees for Four-6 months.

Total Tasting Impressions

Whereas this white wine from Northern Spain’s Catalonia wine area encompasses a comparatively pale lemon-yellow shade, its fragrant profile is sort of aromatic, dominated by notes of lime and fragrant herbs (basil and sage). It smells fairly spicy with inexperienced pepper aromas, with hints of floral characters comparable to honeysuckle, and clear recent inexperienced wooden tones like acacia.

The palate confirms it is a dry and crisp white wine meant to be paired with meals and to ship a refreshing thirst-quenching expertise.

Flavors of citrus are dominant initially, though comparatively discrete, whereas the mid-palate sees an explosion of vegetal inexperienced capsicum, lily flowers, and acacia notes.

The end is lengthy and zing with a strong and long-lasting lime aftertaste, together with the slightly-bitter phenolics, and a delicate sulfuric and mineral observe.

A wine made for pairing with richly-flavored tapas and beneficiant scorching dishes.

Chorizo sausage, garlic bread, roquette salad or garlic snails (referred to as cargols regionally in Catalunya) come to my thoughts as the right matches for such a zingy, floral and grassy Spanish white.

Take pleasure in 🙂
