Characteristics of Idoia Blanc
Idoia Blanc is a white wine from Catalunya prepared by Ca N'Estruc. This winery, located in the foothills of the mountains of Montserrat, in the municipality of Esparraguera, has been producing wine for no less than 5 centuries, from 1548.
Idoia Blanc is a blend of Xarel.lo (70%), Grenache (12%), Macabeo (12%) and Chardonnay (6%). The vineyards are grown on a farm with a specific microclimate because of the cold north winds, with cool summers and temperate winters. The average annual temperature is 14.1ºC.
To prepare Idoia Blanc, one racking takes place in stainless steel barrels for a clean wort before fermentation.
After racking, the wine is macerated in French oak barrels with selected yeasts at a controlled temperature of 15 ° C for 18 days.
Finally, the wine undergoes a 6-month aging in 300 litre Allier French oak barrels from Dargaud & Vicard Jaegle.

For many Catalan winemakers, the DO Catalunya is one of their best weapons for marketing their wines to the international market, since the image of their wine is significantly enhanced by a ‘Denominación de Origen’, which can certify a wines origin and quality. One of the initial positive effects is the fact that great wines are associated with a larger geographic area within the peninsula, in the same way as the Bordeaux region in France. For many producers, the DO Catalunya is a clear sign of the regions commitment towards a model of quality. This is especially beneficial for Catalan wines that previously did not come under another ‘Denominación de Origen’.
