CLOS MARIA BLANC 2017
Clos Maria Blanc is an atypical wine of the Montsant DO. Its great complexity makes it very special and appreciated for accurate wine lovers. This wine is the expression of the Gibertes estate vineyard.
2017 was an outstanding vintage due to exceptional weather conditions, cool and rainy spring followed by a warm and dry summer. High thermal amplitude affected very positively to the aromatics. Also the sunny side of the vineyards make this white to have big structure with balanced acidity.
Grapes were hand-picked, clusters were manually sorted in the vineyard and in the winery. Cold maceration for 6 hs. co-fermented in stainless steel tanks. Aged in stainless still for 12 months and 24 months in the bottle.
