Characteristics of Riu Blanc

Riu Blanc is a white wine from the Priorat, produced by Trio Infernal.

This project is a cellar owned by 3 French wine-makers: Michel Gérin, Laurent Combier and Peter Fischer, who in 2002 founded this winery in Torroja del Priorat (Tarragona).

Riu Blanc is made from the Garnacha Blanca and Macabeo. The grapes come from very old vines, aged between 40 and 50 years, planted on clay-limestone and slate soils.

The preparation is traditional for Riu Blanc. Later the wine is aged for 14 months in oak barrels.

Tasting notes Riu Blanc

A year with a very good balance. This vintage was characterised by the absence of water stress for the plants. Winter and spring were favourable in terms of rainfall and temperatures were slightly higher than usual. At the time of budding, there was no rain, so the vines developed in a suitable manner. The flowering took place in a clean way and the Grenache vines settled in an excellent way. Summer was characterised by cool and dry days, but also humid, which led to good photosynthesis and growth of the plants. During the end of the summer, before the harvest, there was still some humidity, which preserved the freshness of the soil and, consequently, achieving a gradual ripening of the grapes, perfect to retain the aromas and the good acidity. The negative factor was the rain during the harvest days. In short, the vintage has been somewhat atypical for Priorat, with wines that are less voluminous than in a normal year in the area, but with a good acidity that is reflected in the wines and that will keep them optimal for many years.
A year that started with some problems with the flowering but ended up being very good. Winter was colder and rainier than usual. Spring continued with days of low temperatures and a lot of water that delayed flowering and the consequent setting problems until the end of March, affected production. After a complicated year, when the summer began, the rains stopped and the temperatures rose, providing excellent ripening due to optimal rainfall during the year. The year has therefore been one of the best in recent years. Fluidity, acidity and concentration augur for a long life of the wines of this vintage.
Sight Greenish yellow, dense and profound. Nose Good aromatic intensity. Predominance of white fruit with floral notes, mineral and toast. Taste Fresh and wide entrance. Fruity with presence of white fruit and toasted nuances. Good acidity. Long finish.
