Esteve i Gibert Dolç 2015 (1/2 bottle)
Winegrower: Esteve i Gibert Viticultors
Wine region: DO. Penedes
Albarino in Catalonia? Yes! And then made into a sweet white wine, even with some of the grapes affected by noble rot or botrytis. This ensures enormous concentration in the grapes because this benign fungus extracts the moisture from the grape. Long maturation in stainless steel barrel on the lees and regular battonage provides a taste of honey, beeswax, tropical fruit and lychee. Mouth-filling and rich.
