Franscesc writes:  "With this wine, work in the vineyard is very important. To elaborate, we play with different maturity levels of the variety. We conducted two harvests of the same plants. The first harvest was around the 11.5º to achieve the proper and natural acidity of the grapes and the cooler, citrus-driven notes of the variety. By removing some of the burden of the plant, the remaining grapes matured better. Later, we went to pick up the second half of the grapes with a potential alcohol of around 14º. Then, the two parts were joined together again during vinification. We get with this wine is the ultimate expression of the variety, the Yin and Yang of Garnacha Blanca. This wine is not clarified nor stabilized so as to express the purest scents."
