Characteristics of Cigonyes Blanco
Cigonyes Blanco is a white wine from the Empordà prepared by Castillo Perelada. The winery is based in Castle Peralada (Gerona), place of great wine tradition whose roots date back to the sixteenth century, when wine was made by Carmelite monks who inhabited the castle.
The name, Cigonyes Blanco (meaning storks in Catalan) celebrates the white stork colony nesting on the castle grounds.
Cigonyes Blanco is designed as a typical wine of Empordà, therefore it is made almost entirely with Macabeo (91%), a classic white variety of Empordà, with a touch of Sauvignon Blanc (9%).
To prepare Cigonyes Blanco, vinification of the must flower is performed at a controlled temperature of 15 ° C.

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.
Historically, the great economic engine of D.O. Empordà has been and still is Perelada. Many other wineries have looked up to them. Although it produces a wide range of wines, from the more linear and competitive ones to the those that are more exclusive, such as Finca Garbet, the Finca Malaveïna or the Ex Ex collection, among others, it also offers wines made with native varieties, such as the Red and White Grenache, Samsó, etc. However, more than the numerical weight of the wine variety, we must point out the effort made by this winery to halt the progressive decline suffered by the area's image, as a land of bulk wines, where the few bottled wines were oxidised, and others were not too marketable. It is safe to say that Perelada lead the way and marked the new path of the Empordà wines.
