Òscar Navas made his first vintage in 2017,  using the cellar of a friend in Terra Alta. The region has hot days, a salty and fresh afternoon wind and cooling nights due to its elevation. This gave his wine a concentration, balanced with acidity and freshness. The region is famous for its ‘panal’ soil, one with high sand content and little water retention at the surface. Vines struggle to reach the water table deep below and the result is low production, small bunches of grapes and an intensity in flavour.

 

This wine is made with 70% Garnatxa Blanca and 30% Parellada, aged for 6 months in cement. With just 1400 bottles produced, Blanc de Corbera is a rare, pure and honest expression of Terra Alta and its terroir.
