Opinión de los críticos
Their one white, the 2019 Font de la Figuera Blanco is mainly Viognier, a variety that arrived by mistake in Priorat, and the truth is that it feels very different in Priorat than in its cradle in the nNorthern Rhône. They started making this cuvée in 2005 with 70% to 80% Viognier, 20% to 25% Garnacha Blanc and the rest Chenin Blanc to provide some extra acidity. It's a ripe and powerful white fermented and matured in stainless steel for six months, except for the Garnacha and Chenin, which fermented in 500-liter oak casks. It is still very young, a little reductive and quite fruit-driven but with beautiful subdued minerality. Despite the warmer year and the ripeness of the grapes, the wine feels very balanced and fresh. It's approachable now but should also develop in bottle for a few years. They produce between 3,500 and 4,000 bottles of this white. This 2019 was bottled in March 2020.. - Luis Gutiérrez.
