Characteristics of Font de la Figuera Blanc

One of the best white wines from Priorat. Thanks to this blend of very different varieties planted 15 years ago in small plots located at 500 m altitude on the slopes of Gratallops, and thanks to a careful winemaking process which combines several techniques and ageings, Christopher Cannan has got to produce an excellent and elegant well-bodied white wine. The grapes are manually harvested. They go through the selection table and, after a fermentation at low temperature, they undergo a maceration with the skins. A part of the wine is aged in second year French oak barrels where it remains for about 4 months. The rest lies in stainless steel tanks. Once the blend is made, the wine is bottled and left to stay for a short time.

Tasting notes Font de la Figuera Blanc

The Priorat region was marked by heavy drought and heat. Following an autumn and winter with normal temperatures and rainfall, spring began with an abnormal drought and high temperatures. Flowering was successful, occurring before the expected date, but the rains didn’t come. During the summer the high temperatures continued, and the lack of rainfall resulted in the earliest harvest in history. In general, the wines of this vintage are noted for their concentration, being less pronounced in wines produced with local varieties such as Grenache or Cariñena. Perfect for enjoying young, and with a medium aging capacity.
We present the new 2016 vintage, characterised by the wettest winterin the last five years. Not only did it rain in winter, but there was also wet weather up until summer arrived, especially inMarch and April. In summer everything changed, and it was one of the driest inhistory, with only 28 litres being recorded between July and October.If we compare the temperatures in 2012 and 2016, the 2016 crophad to endure a much colder winter than in 2012, which turned outto be positive, since the frost cleared the fields ofvine parasites. During the spring, lower temperaturesthan in 2012 were also recorded.Due to all these climatic conditions there was a delay insprouting, which began on March 28th, and which led to a delayin flowering of between three and four weeks.Once the summer arrived, the Priorat got all the luck, sincethe rains disappeared, while in the rest of Europethey were incessant. It was something that nobody expected considering thewinter we’d had. Taking into account the delay insprouting, the harvest started around mid-October on some ofthe estates.Obtaining fresh wines with an extraordinary acidity is dueto this long duration of the grape in the strain that has so characterisedthis vintage.
The vintage began in autumn in the best possible way, with good rainfalls that would fill the water reserves for optimal growth development. Winter was characterised by low temperatures and even snow covered some areas of Priorat. March started wet and cold, which delayed the budding of the vines. In mid-May, flowering was encouraged and was followed by a somewhat unstable June with several rainfalls.
Sight Beautiful yellow colour with golden reflections. Very bright and slightly glyceric. Nose Elegant and seductive nose in which the smoked and mineral notes appears first and are intermingled with many aromas of ripe fruit, ranging from citrus to the touches of exotic fruits on an elegant spicy background. Taste Complex, intense and very tasty wine with a voluminous attack and a long, silky, very tasty and creamy mid palate. Its very tasty notes of fruit are felt along with mineral aromas which are rounded with subtle notes of wood. Good but not very marked acidity. Long finish which leaves slightly sweet persistent fruity sensations. A pleasure of a wine!
