$15.00 (PA tax not included)

Clot d’encís: Essential Grenaches from southern Catalonia

A very unique white wine, made from red grapes. With a pale, almost transparent colour, it is well-balanced and very fruity. CLOT is a purely Mediterranean wine, able to conjure up the body and taste of traditional Terra Alta wines. This blanc de noirs is produced exclusively from the most common grape in our own vineyards, the Grenache.

Description

Clot d’encís wines offer an updated and high-quality expression of the most representative types and styles of the Terra Alta Protected Designation of Origin (DO). The name refers to the idyllic landscape that surrounds the area, and specifically, the location of the winemaker’s village, Bot, between ravines that drain into the Canaletes River Valley.

Clot d’encís has been made since 1996, with the objective of combining a long tradition of wine production with daily consumption, and the demand for those who enjoy wine occasionally. Clot d’encís wines are made with grapes from selected Grenache vineyards, 20 or more years old.
