Negron & Rolich Flash 2019

  • Flash is a blend of traditional red and white Catalan varieties, 50% Garnatxa Negra, 25% Garnatxa Blanca, and 25% Macabeu, from vines ranging 20 to 85 years old, in the villages of Vilalba dels Arcs and Batea in Terra Alta (the far south of Catalunya, in northern Spain). The vines are planted on deep panal soils, which are composed of silty loam with high limestone content and layers of gypsum. The soil is well-draining and retains deep reserves of water, providing the vines with moisture to resist the Mediterranean heat and lending a bright, salty expression to the wines.
