Orto Vins Blanc d'Orto 2017

  • Orto Vins is a young winery situated in the town of El Masroig. Founded in 2008 by very experienced Viticulturists it has quickly turned into one of our favorite Montsant wineries. Joan Asens, not only has collaborated with Álvaro Palacios, but has multiple decades of experience teaching enology and is responsible for finding a level of purity and freshness almost unseen in this area of the world.

    This is a blend of 93% Macabeo, 7% Garnatxa Blanca from three plots or old vines on a variety of soil types. Organically farmed, native yeasts, and some skin-contact all go into this medium-bodied Mediterranean white wine that would be perfect with fish tacos, herbed-poultry, or even braised rabbit with sage, and peas.
