Francesc Ferre’s family has been farming grapes organically in Corbera d’Ebre for over 200 years, but only just began making wine in 2009 with then 21 year-old Francesc at the helm, fresh out of school. It looks as if a giant pulled a ripcord from the earth to create the mountains on either side of their mediterranean valley, flanked by a forest to the east and a modern phalanx of windmills on its blustery western ridge. La Foradada is a tale of the Garnacha Blanca and the land itself. Fermented at very low temperatures, then aged also under cool conditions on its lees before being bottled unfiltered. Flavors of green almonds, rosemary honey, wild fennel, chamomile and pear reach out from within the glass. This is a taste of spring and summer that delivers year round.
