Morlanda Blanc 2015, DO Priorat
Morlanda Blanc 2015, white wine from Priorat, Catalonia, Spain. A special white wine fermented in french oak barrels with a very personal touch in the whole production.
Tasting notes: Pale straw yellow, star bright. Peachy stone fruits predominate on the nose, and there are also aromas of freshly cut grass and some cedar. On the palate it is bright, with a balanced acidity to reinforce its fine structure. On the back palate there are again stone fruit flavours and some toasty notes. It is a rich wine, with good body and fine length.
Wine description: 2015 was a year of moderately high temperatures, but with a series of heatwaves during July, although in Ausgust cool evenings allowed the grapes to continue ripening in a normal manner. There was some rain during the harvest creating a certain amount of concern, but at least during this vintage the rains were not as heavy as in 2014, and were no major problems bring the crop in. 2015 was in fact a year in which the grapes developed in an absolutely perfect, healthy way.
Pairings: Cheese, rice dishes, sea food and template salades.
Varieties: WHITE GRANACHE 85%. MACABEO 13%. MOSCATEL 2%.
