Tasting notes: Idoia Blanc
Idoia Blanc is a complex and layered with aromas of tropical fruit and brioche . The palate is opulent with savoury, nutty characters balanced by apricot and a touch of vanilla. Weighty with mineral complexity and bright citrus acidity on the finish.
A good match for full-flavoured grilled fish or chicken in a creamy sauce.
The Ca N’Estruc estate dates back to 1548. Here on the slopes of the holy mountain of Montserrat in Esparreguera – half an hour away from Barcelona – Francisco Marti cultivates 22 hectares planted at 165m on alluvial soil.
The estate has a unique microclimate with the vineyards planted to protect vines from the cold north winds whilst optimising sunshine to ensure full ripening. They experience cool summers, mild winters and an average annual temperature of 14ºC. Ca N’Estruc is a family property located in a unique place, the slopes of the mountain of Montserrat, in the municipal term of Esparreguera (near Barcelona). The estate is one of the oldest properties –documented since 1574– and has lived in harmony with its environment for centuries. Currently, 22 hectares of vineyards are cultivated in this unique area –benefited and sheltered by this magical mountain–, from which full ranges of young and ageing wines are elaborated.
Ca N’Estruc is the first winery registered in the DO Catalunya, created in 1999, heir to a winemaking tradition with more than 2000 years of history.
