Grenache Gris planted in 1954 on slate.
Light green with silver rim.
The 2017 Iglesia Vella is a reflection of its origins, next to the stony soil, the herbs of the garrigue and the rushing and roaring sea, grapefruit, quince and a hint of coconut show up in the nose. The whole is carried by cool slate notes and fragrant hints of lime blossom and chamomile.
Super juicy and precise the palate with great freshness and extreme saltiness equipped. A wine that fascinates, inspires and takes the drinker completely for itself. Clear and puristic companions are trumps here!
Be sure to carafe and use large glasses.
