Anna Espelt 'Pla de Gates' Blanc, Empordà, Spain 2020
The D.O. Empordà, is located in the northeastern corner of Catalunya, on the border with France. Anna Espelt, a historian, adventurer, and winemaker, founded this property nestled within the Cap de Creus Nature Reserve. There is evidence of human interaction with this ancient landscape dating back to the early bronze age. Anna knew this place was special, and worked to revitalize local vineyards and bring the balance between humans and nature. This is a Mediterranean white wine, saline, fresh and herbaceous with the beautiful fruit we all love in Garnacha Blanc.
