Ca N’Estruc Idoia Blanc 2019
Spain / Catalonia
Andy's Tasting Notes
A richly textured oaked white wine. A fantastic match for cream based dishes.
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.
37% Xarel-Lo, 37% Garnacha Blanca, 19% Chardonnay, and a touch of Macabeu. The wine spent 5 months in new French oak.
Price per bottle £15.20
The Ca N’Estruc estate dates back to 1548, and is located on the slopes of the holy mountain of Montserrat in Esparreguera – half an hour away from Barcelona – where 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 with an average annual temperature of 14ºC.
