Finca Casa Balaguer are a small family run winery based in Alicante. Their wines are made in the most natural way possible, practicing organic agriculture. The focus is on local grape varieties such as Monastrell, Alicante Bouschet and Malvasia, and only natural yeasts and absolutely no chemical additives are used in their wines. In their own words, ‘we believe our grapes should express themselves naturally, so it is our job as wines makers to provide them with the best possible environment in which to grow. The less intervention from us in the winery the better, so our wines can truly reflect the character of our wonderful land.’
Light golden yellow in color. Notes of stone fruit, like peach and notes of orange peel and orange blossoms on the nose. With volume and complex on the palate with a pronounced saline character from the salty soils. A white wine with great texture, medium bodied with well-integrated acidity, the finish is dry and long.
