The Impressionant is a small production skin-fermented Garnatxa Blanca from a gorgeous vineyard full of limestone and clay, at 500 meters above sea level. After a hand-harvest, the grapes were fermented naturally with skins in 800-liter clay amphora for about five and a half months before a very light pressing and no filtration or fining before bottling.  No sulfites were used during the whole process, and results in a rustic orange wine that is a pure expression of the incredible local white Garnacha. Aromatic and raw in the glass, this wine comes in full of texture in the nose all the way to the long lasting finish.  Dried apricots, peaches, white flowers, orange zest, and a chalky grip, the Impressionant is long and pleasurable, and absolutely stunning with a plethora of cuisine.

Bodegas Puiggros only took their wines to market in 2008 but they still have a romantic winemaking history. Since 1843, the Puiggros family has been producing wines from their own vines in the Odena region of Catalunya for the family and close friends. Over generations they had come to realize that their vineyards and techniques were something worth sharing with the world. A sincere dedication to the terroir in their zone and the indigenous varieties that grow there, allows them to constantly discover ways to unlock all of the magic that lies within their land. Starting with conscious and clean farming in the vineyard, they hand-harvest only the best fruit for their production, and ferment each vineyard separately in varying vessels to accentuate what the vines have to show; some in stainless steel, and many in clay amphora of differing sizes.  Depending on the batch, the wine goes into top quality oak for extra aging, all the while seeing very little sulfur use (if any) until bottling.  Puiggros is pushing the quality of northeastern Spain's wines forward, and doing so in a clean and unique way.
