The Garage Wine Garnatxa Blanca Macabeo 2019

Years ago in a blind tasting of Spanish white wines a wine friend surprised us all. The quality of the wines was stunning at the most of us praised the wines and labelled them as Montrachet here, Montrachet there.

It was a humble experience and we all learned that day some important lessons. This wine is another great example of Vino Blanco and it delivers overall.

👃The nose delivers great purity and finesse, it’s a party in the nose of wild flowers and soft citrus tones. It’s a feast to smell this kind of nose.

👄In the mouth the wine is pure and powerful in the same time, it’s a wine that has great intensity but is waving very light through my mouth, it’s like pure silk.

💰💰This is a no brainer for me and with around €50,00 it’s not cheap but considering the crazy prices in the white Burgundy wine world it’s cheap.

🕰This is great drinking now but can and will develop in bottle in the upcoming years.

Corpinnat Terrers Brut Nature Macabeo-Xarel-lo-Parellada 2015

So this is rather lovely. Close your eyes and it’s champagne but honestly, who cares? It’s Corpinnat and it’s fantastic. Pale shimmering gold in the glass with medium effervescence and nice small bubbles. Quite a bit of apple notes on initially on the nose. Almond slivers and beautiful citrus fruit. There’s a reoccurring note of vanilla to go with the brioche aromas.

As a newcomer to Corpinnat, I really wasn’t sure what to expect but this really is just that good. Such an interesting blend consisting of 58/32/10 Xarel-lo/Macabeo/Monastrell. Disgorged in February of 2021 after 60 months of aging with no dosage. The acidity is lively but not quite bracing, especially by day 2. It certainly drinks as if it were more mature than it is, delightful in all aspects.

The palate is fresh, engaging, and generous. It opens itself up to you immediately. Here citrus takes center stage with lemons and a bit of apricot. Red cherries wave hello with some warm spice. The finish is long and lusty and leaves you wanting more. This is so fun.
