2017 Josep Foraster Blanc Seleccio, Conca de Barbera, Spain (750ml)
The family Foraster has been growing grapes in Conca de Barbera for over 150 years. In 1998 Julieta and his son Ricard embarked on their dream of taking over the family winery and started making wines focusing on local varieties. Mas Foraster produces wines from estate fruits only practicing organic farming.
The vineyards are located in a valley surrounded by mountains at an altitude of 400 m, to 600 m, 30 km from the sea; sharing its southern border with Priorat and Montsant. The high elevation of Conca de Barbera, combined with the cool sea breeze from the Mediterranean sea, allows the grape to retain acidity during ripening season producing fresher wine, with structure and elegance. A white wine with body and a lot of ageing potential. Ripe and tropical fruit, soft toasted, citrus, with a background of butter and a fresh finish with notes of nuts.
