This fresh prince is what every Garnatxa Blanca in Terra Alta wants to taste like.  Francesc makes a selection from the Quart and ferments it dry with its skins; he adds nothing, not even sulfur.  It’s elegant, scintillating and evokes a happy place like summer peaches exploding with bright juice or a warm breeze carrying salty, sun-baked clay, wild herbs and the sea.  Delicious, complex, haunting – you’ll still be thinking about this wine, long after the last sip.
