Characteristics of Bàrbara Forés Blanc
Bárbara Forés Blanc is a white wine produced by the winery Bárbara Forés in Gandesa (Tarragona), D.O.Terra Alta.
Bárbara Forés is a family-run winery that dates back to the late 19th century, when Rafael Ferrer Forés started to make wine. Currently, Carmen Ferrer and her husband, Manuel Sanmartín, are in charge of the winery.
Bárbara Forés has 22 hectares of vineyard. This allows them to combine altitude and orientation, the pains and the hills, the shade and the sun. Alongside cultivation with natural products and organic manure, they achieve a unique grape that adjusts to the requirements and characteristics of the different farms.
Bàrbara Forés Blanc is a wine made from White Grenache y Viognier from their own vineyards.
After the manual harvest, the grapes go through skin-contact maceration for 24 hours. Once they are pressed, they ferment at a controlled temperature for 15 days in stainless steel deposits.
Bàrbara Forés Blanc is an intense, aromatic and dry wine. Aromas of fresh white fruit with marked flowery notes. In the mouth it is unctuous and fresh.

Wines from Terra Alta boast a unique character. This is down to numerous factors, including the region's unique wine culture, the location of the vineyards in the inland Mediterranean, and the abundance of native varieties including the Garnacha Blanca, whose white wines perhaps best express the unique character of the terroir. It is for this reason that these wines hold their own distinctive classification of “Terra Alta Garnacha Blanca”.
