Winemaker's Notes

The pale yellow color tinted in green announces a wine with a great deal of freshness and purity.

The complex nose reveals floral and mineral notes with accents of fresh citrus fruits.

Lively and fresh, the aromas of flowers and white fruits, blends with flint. The very soft finish evinces a great deal of minerality.

Critical Acclaim

"Even more serious is the 2009 Nostre Pais (80% Grenache Blanc, 10% Viognier, and 10% Roussanne), a more honeyed, richer, fuller-bodied effort with plenty of texture as well as beautifully pure notes of quince, white currants, flowers, and an unmistakable minerality. Half of the wine is barrel fermented and the other half is aged in concrete. This fresh, textured beauty exhibits structure, purity, and length. Drink it over the next 1-2 years."
