Frontonio

Garnacha Blanca 2017

DESCRIPTION

Frontonio Garnacha Blanca is named after Saint Frontonio, the patrón saint of Épila, a town in Valdejalón, North-East Spain, where it is produced. Legend has it that Saint Frontonio was beheaded by the Romans. His body was buried in a cemetery and his head was thrown into the River Ebro near Zaragoza. Miraculously, his head was later found going upstream along the banks of the River Jalón in Épila. Likewise, this limited production of “micro” wine is the result of rowing against the stream. It is also something of a miracle. It comes from a humble garage where it is made by Fernando Mora MW, Francisco Latasa and Mario López without any fuss.

TASTING NOTES

Medium lemon green. Intense lime, white flowers and hay. White pepper, butter scotch and smoked aromas coming from fermentation and ageing in Allier 500-liter barrels for 8 months. Long length. Dry, crisp acidity and integrated alcohol. Impressive acidity balanced with creamy texture together with intense and complex aromatic profile makes it unique.
