After Acústic Celler in Montsant and Ritme Celler in Priorat, Albert Jané originally of Celler Jané Ventura in Penedès surprises once again with his latest and recent personal project, this time he is back to his origins and delight us with two white wines 100% from autochthones varieties of which he is a strong believer.
Gran Autòcton 2015 is the big brother, more serious and structured than the Autòcton, a white wine made from the autochthones older vines at the Finca Mas Vilella, an old traditional Catalan winery from the XVI century in the Baix Penedés and the Alt Camp in the province of Tarragona, vines overlooking the Mediterranean sea from the hills of the majestic Sierra del Montmell.
Fermented in French oak barrels and Clay amphoras where it has spent 8 months, a wine with a great length, marked by its elegance, refinement and distinction.
Tasting Notes: Aromas redolent of Mediterranean herbs, thyme and fennel, deeply fruited aromas, peach and mature pineapple, combined with an excellent fine creaminess from the big barrel, good fruit weight on the palate that lingers on the finish, fresh mouth feel, well-structured, powerful with a very elegant and seductive finish.
Note: A white wine to enjoy now and that will continue to evolve in bottle during the next few years.
