Capçanes ‘Mas Donís’ Garnacha Blanca 2014
Garnacha Blanca and 30% Macabeu, stainless steel, 4 months cold maceration.
Orchard fruits, meadow flowers and sandy soil fill an immediately likeable nose. The palate is simple and sunny, but fresh, and has good richness and volume without sweetness. It's nicely textured, really easy-going with a touch of gentle skin-tannin grip and very nicely controlled phenolics carried along in limestone's gentle strictness. There's real restraint, rather than Rhoney blowsiness, with linearity and grip - the melding of fruit skins and soil running the show and finishing with a nice metal-mineral acid thread.
