Paisaje de las Islas Forastera Blanca 2017

Alder Yarrow
9.1

The wine world is so incredibly vast, life’s too short to drink the same thing all the time. Let’s all drink adventurously, shall we? Here’s a great example. Ever heard of the grape Forastera Blanca? Not likely unless you’ve been to a tiny speck of an island off the Altlantic coast of North Africa, named La Gomera. The smallest of the Canary Islands, it is the homeland for this unusua grape that has been revived commercially by Mr. Agustín Farráis. These own-rooted 100-year-old vines yield a wine that smells of pear skin, sea air and dried yellow herbs. Flavors of crushed stone, sea air, citrus pith, and herbs linger with a faint struck-flint note in the finish, as if the wine, in the end wants to make sure you never forget the volcano. — 2 days ago

Abrisa't Terra Alta Garnatxa Blanca 2018

100% Garnacha blanca from a single plot in Gandesa, planted in the 1990s in panal (fossilized sand dunes) soils. Fermented in clay amphorae with indigenous yeasts and short skin maceration - just 5 days, as opposed to the estate’s other “brisat” wines, which macerate with their skins for 1-4 months. Aged in clay amphorae for 6 months. Aromas of tangerine, apple, white flowers and some herbal notes. Fresh, elegant, balanced. Good acidity. Long finish, with slightly bitter notes. — 2 months ago

Vino de la Tierra Bajo Aragón Garnacha Blanca 2017

I like it better than the already fantastic 2016. Melon fruit, saltiness and vanilla makes a very interesting combination. Not your everyday wine. — 2 months ago
