Herència Altés Garnatxa Blanca

HERE020
The Garnatxa Blanca is grown on sand and clay with some calcerous content. A young expression of this variety, the old vines it is grown on helps achieve complexity and balance. It spends 2 months on fine lees to gain texture and complexity resulting in an aromatic wine with notes of melon and white fruits on the nose that is balanced with a medium body.
