Casa Mariol Garnatxa Blanca – Terra Alta 2013
Brilliant and shiny, dressed in green-yellowish hues. Very delicate and good persistence. Full-bodied palate and soft on entry.
Casa Mariol is a family-owned Mediterranean winery located in Catalonia, operating out of "La Batea" a medieval town in the heart of the Terra Alta region. Jose Maria Vaquer Bes opened the first winery in 1945 and the latest generation, led by Miquel Angel Vaquer and his siblings, has launched a small revolution in packaging and attitude . . . (no fancy packaging, no vintage focus, no oak, & no BS—just good juice at a good price). Ironically, they have won European design awards for their simple packaging and represented Spain at the World Expo in Shanghai in 2010. For the past century, as growers, the Mariol family has been tending to their vineyards sustainably to bring you the best crop. Produced using only environmentally friendly methods, their wines are pure Spanish craftsmanship.
