LAFOU ELS AMELERS
100% White Garnacha
A pioneer in the white garnatxa grape style, different tasks are carried out to extract the best virtues of each grapevine.
With the younger grapevines a first-time style of grape harvest is carried out, to boost the acidity and the most primary fruit. The older grapevines are harvested at a more advanced state of ripening.
The grape is put in the cellar and is refrigerated to 5ºC. A line of work is applied in a stainless steel deposit to boost a young and alive core, a line of work in concrete egg fermenter to boost the volume, the acidity and the pure varietal expressivity and a line of work in oak to boost the structure, elegance and longevity of the wine.
Fermentation and aging for 6 months on lees in concrete egg vats and stainless steel tanks. 10% of the wine is aged in 300L oak barrels.
The name of the wine “Els Amelers” honors the almond trees that live alongside the vines in the vineyards in the Terra Alta region.
