Complex, intriguing Spanish white blend from vineyards just a stone’s throw from Barcelona – and named after Francisco Marti’s daughter Idoia.
DO Catalunya, Spain.
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
Produced from Xarel-lo, Garnacha Blanca and Chardonnay grapes, with a touch of Macabeu. The wine spends 5 months in new French oak.
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.
