Rebels de Batea Blanco 2013, 100% Garnacha Blanca

A delightful example of Terra Alta Garnacha at its best! White fruit, a fine and perfumed note which highlights the white flowers and lavender, also finding a slight smoky note. It is a wine with creaminess, structure and nerve, citrus and fruit are present and apricot and white peach predominates. Rebels de Batea Blanco is balanced, pleasant and seductive, with fragrant aromas of peach, pear, apple and notes of white flowers and nutmeg that give finesse and elegance. For more than 50 years, generations of winemakers in Terra Alta have struggled against the harsh conditions of climate and soil. Today, when Terra Alta is mentioned, one thing comes to mind, the Garnacha Blanca!

The winery of 7 Magnifics has yet to be visited but I couldn’t stop myself from posting my tasting notes as I believe that this is a cellar to keep ones eyes on! Many good things are to come from this enthusiastic project in the near future, and I for one, am going to follow its progress closely. At presnet they have launched two wines, of 2013 harvest but the plan is to add five more to the total tally! Exiting times ahead for the 7 Magnifics and for the wineries of Terra Alta!
