Characteristics of Blanc de Gresa

Blanc de Gresa is a white wine made by the Vinyes d'Olivardots winery in Capmany (Girona). D.O. Empordà.

Vinyes d'Olivardots has its origin in 2002, when the married couple Carme Casacuberta and Antoni Pena decided to launch this project.

Surrounded by a unique landscape consisting of four hectares of vineyards, the Vinyes d'Olivardots facilities were designed to work with the help of gravity together with the most modern techniques, while still maintaining the most traditional methodology. The result of all this are wines with a great deal of personality, expressing all the character of this unique terroir to the utmost.

Blanc de Gresa is a white wine made with White Grenache, Red Grenache and White Carinyena grapes from vineyards that are between 90 and 110 years old, located in the flattest area of the region, on alluvial soils with pebbles and sand.

The grapes are harvested by hand and placed in 10 kg boxes. Once in the cellar a cold-soak pre-maceration is performed (2-4° C) and a subsequent film maceration. The two grenaches ferment in 500 liter French oak barrels, where they stand for 8 months, with periodic batonages. The white Carinyena is vinified in stainless steel tanks, and remains with its fine lees until the final assembly.

Tasting notes Blanc de Gresa

Blanc de Gresa 2015 is a mature, creamy wine with character. In this vintage the aromas of ripe white fruit stand out on the nose, with notes of Mediterranean herbs over an elegant and subtle toasted base note. On the palate it is silky, with volume and a very lingering finish.

Designation of Origin D.O. Empordà

Winery Vinyes d'Olivardots

The landscape of the region of Empordà, located in the northeast of Catalonia, is full of contrasts, due to the natural limits of the Pyrenees in the north and the Mediterranean Sea and magnificent Costa Brava in the east. Thanks to these, the Empordà is a unique place, a special territory between the sea and the mountains, marked by the presence of the north wind known as Tramontana.
