Variety

Garnacha Gris

This is a skin contact orange wine made from old vines of Garnacha Gris. Franscesc writes: "Les Alifares de Celler Frisach. Vernatxa gris fermented with skins. And nothing else: that’s how the feelings sound after the first drink. We came from a very dark and deep night and all light is inadequate. We got the memory of the time marked in the skin and of the year seasons dyed in the must."
