2021 Celler Frisach ‘Instint Primari’ Vernatxa Blanca, Terra Alta, Spain
Farming Practice: Certified Organic
Certified organic. 24 year-old vineyard of Vernatxa. This is the wine at Frisach that strikes the most like Chablis: textured, very sandy and saline, with persistent, oceanic acidity keeping it tense; it’s definitely age-worthy. Soils are all petrified sand dunes (panal) at 400 msl; these are very windy sites. Skin-fermented for one week, then aged six months in 500L oak barrels. No filtration, small amount of SO2 just before bottling.
