Details for Lafou Els Amelers 2018
Bottle size and vintage
Els Amelers from Lafou Celler is always a sign that spring has arrived. Such refinement, a huge fragrance, fantastic sinew and freshness! It's a cocktail of fruits and white flowers, a real pleasure to smell: open, aromatic, clean and particularly refreshing. If certain features of this wine stand out, they are its special lightness, fragrance and freshness.
The winery spares no detail in its making, all to achieve a complex, austere but refined wine. To start with, it's made exclusively from old Garnacha Blanca vines, a part of them planted facing westwards, in the Terra Alta. There the Mediterranean climate succumbs to continental influences, with considerable contrasts in temperature, and the grapes are gathered at different times in order to fuse a greater diversity of aromas and flavours. During ageing, it spends some but not too much time on its lees, therefore achieving a delicate unctuosity; and in addition, 10% of the wine reposes in lightly toasted barrels for just four months, thus attaining greater complexity and structure, and lengthening the life of the wine.
Els Amelers is almost colourless, a very pale but luminous yellow. On the nose it is seductive with its white flowers (jasmine), its fruit complexity (from sharp green apples to sweeter, fleshier fruits, such as pears and doughnut-shaped peaches), its notes of aniseed, fennel, almonds and tender nuts, and its minerality. A crisp, refreshing Garnacha Blanca that remains fresh in the glass and in the bottle. Our advice is not to serve it too cold, since it has that inner coolness. Also, enjoy it over time, as this little white has a long life, a Garnacha Blanca to the letter, with a triple accent: minerality, freshness and fragrance.

Un blanco con cuerpo
Vino blanco con cuerpo desde la provincia de Tarragona. Aunque muchos asocian el vino blanco con pescado, lo encuentro también como una buena opción para acompañar carne, particularmente cochinillo y cordero.by: Nabokov (05/03/2018) - Vintage 2016
Another success for Terra Alta
I am more and more impressed with the wines of Terra Alta, and this one is no exception. Fresh, but creamy, full of peach, apricot and pear flavours with a delicate touch of candied fruit which never becomes cloying.
