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.
Castillo de Perelada winery is situated in the D.O. Empordà. The high quality grapes are grown in their own vineyards spread out between five different estates with a great range of poor soils. This results in complex wines full of nuances and with lots of character.
