Clos Dalian Garnacha Blanca 2015
The wines of Clos Dalian are hand crafted by one of Spain’s greatest co-ops. Since 1942, the Cellers Unio have continued a 200 year old winemaking tradition in Catalonia, the region surrounding. Their farmers are strongly committed to our land and the people, and this commitment has driven Cellers Unió’s activity for more than 70 years. They believe that the best way of showing this commitment is crafting excellent wines, which serve as a tribute to their farmers’ work and, at the same time, guarantee our environment’s sustainability. This way they keep alive the spirit of all those generations who have dedicated their life to agriculture. To achieve this goal they promote sustainable agriculture and invest in the cellars and facilities to upgrade their equipment.
Producing full-bodied white wines, Grenache Blanc can be unctuous and soft or floral and fresh. Some of the finest examples are terroir-driven, age-worthy wines. It is a key ingredient in white Châteauneuf-du-Pape and many white blends across southern France and NE Spain. Somm Secret—Grenache Blanc plays a key role in the vins doux naturels of Rivesaltes and a subsidiary role in those of Banyuls and Maury.
