Costers del Priorat Blanc de Pissares

2016 Costers del Priorat Blanc de Pissarres...$26.99
Rare and small production

Only one place on Wine-Searcher lists it and we are cheaper of course.

Blanc de Pissarres is derived from the word "pizarra" which is "slate" in Spanish. Made in small quantities, this white wine is sourced from selected parcels in the vineyards of Sant Martí and Mas Alsera. It is a blend of three local varieties: Garnacha Blanca, Macabeo, and Pedro Ximénez.
Tasting Notes The nose shows the marked personality of the Priorat’s White Grenache, with its characteristic notes of white flowers, herbs and fruit skin. The palate is unctuous, with citrus and smoky flavours. The finish is very persistent and offers a surprising and lovely sweet touch. It is the warm and charming footprint of the Pedro Ximenez variety, in interesting balance with a fresh and genuine minerality.
