Montsant, down the hill from Priorat, is home to some of Spain’s most interesting full-bodied reds, and its whites are too often overlooked. ​Portal del Montsant's vineyards are small parcels of varying aspects at 700-800 metres, the highest elevations of Cornudella.

This is 100% Garnacha Blanca from four plots of vines aged between 60 and 80 years old. Grapes were hand harvested then fermentation took place in stainless steel, before the wine was aged in very large, old French oak barrels. The 2013 vintage was featured a cool springtime, so harvest was a bit later than usual but with lovely, healthy grapes. And the wine? Very floral, with white peaches and pears, lovely texture allied with freshness on the palate. A rare pleasure.
