Terra Alta, Spain
The Celler Pinol winery is in Terra Alta, the highest wine growing region in Cataluna, Spain. This wine is 100% Garnacha Blanca, a light-skinned mutation of the red grape Garnacha we know well. The fruit for 'Raig de Raim' is grown in limestone soils from vines that are 10-25 years old. The wine is cold pressed and fermented in stainless steel. On the palate, you'll find green apple and stone fruits, orange zest, and white flowers. The fruit-forward nature of the wine is balanced with it's high acidity. Try this with some citrus-marinated chicken or your favorite soft cheeses for a delicious pairing!
