Zerran Garnatxa Blanca 2014
Green-apple and honeyed aromas are more simple and anonymous than special. This varietal white Grenache has a shearing linear acidic palate that fosters tart flavors of tangerine and lemon peel. A stony drawn finish is crisp and zesty.
Pear, blanched almond and waxy notes mingle in this sleek, firm white, which has a slight rustic touch but finishes clean. Drink now through 2018. 500 cases made.
Ordoñez has nearly ten acres in Montsant and his vineyards there were planted between 1932-1942. The rarity, the 2014 Zerran Garnatxa Blanca, is Grenache Blanc grown in the complex slate, clay, chalk and sandy soils of this area. Crisp, elegant citrus and mineral notes dominate this mid-weight, medium-bodied wine that is fresh, dry and straightforward. Consume it over the next year.
