Made with a blend of all our white grapes: Godello, Doña Blanca, Palomino and a touch of Malvasía grapes from both states, it is our only Vine de Village breaking our regular approach of doing single vineyard wines. Cantariña 4 is, as some good friends of us say, the fruit of tenacity or even thick-head character that we had to prove right our local white varieties. A true Homage to some of the great white wines that we remembered at home made by our grandfather. It is a promising finding that we hope takes us through a beautiful journey.

Tasting Notes La Blanca 2020
Golden shiny colour. Round, tasty, on the nose it opens to honey, white fruits such as compote apples, quince, and dried flowers. Fresh and elegant in the mouth, with a crispy finish that reminds of green apples. Not joking: tastes like the 4 grape varieties it is made of! And of course, wine. Well bodied but fresh and with a very gentle passing through the palate thanks to its sharp acidity.
