Given how well Marc’s first batch of reds were received, I was intrigued to taste his white.

And I was blown away by the quality of this wine.

It’s made from a rare, local grape called Escanya-Vella, which means ‘strong old lady’ in Catalan. The grapes have thick skins, which gives the wine loads of flavour and freshness.

The nose is amazing and has loads going on - lemon meringue, honey, peaches and herbs. And then on the palate it’s broad, intense, juicy and finishes with a lovely sweetness.

This is a special wine, made from a local grape which has almost disappeared, in tiny quantities. If you’re a fan of big, complex whites, such as Viognier or Marsanne, then this is seriously worth a try.

Due to extremely limited supply, there's a limit of 1 bottle per customer on this wine.

Just two hours from Barcelona, I love drinking and visiting Priorat - if you like your reds big, and with tons going on, then Marc’s wines are for you.

Ferran was sommelier at the famed El Bulli for 13 years, and now writes for as the Spanish wine writer. There probably isn’t a more respected wine palate in Spain.
