Wine Advocate 91 points - The 2013 Els Amelers is pure, old-vine Garnacha Blanca aged in contact with the lees for seven months with only a small part of the wine matured in oak, which helps to keep the freshness. Mediterranean herbs, fennel and pollen intermixed with white and yellow fruit define the nose. The medium-bodied palate is clean, has focused flavors but somehow I was expecting more freshness. Anyway, a very good Garnacha Blanca.  (Jun 2015)

Wine maker notes
LAFOU ELS AMELERS Pale yellow colour with straw tones, bright. On nose, its citric notes (grapefruit, lemon pip) surrounded by white flower (jasmine) appeal. Slowly sweet fruit aroma (apricot) appear against a nutty background (green almonds) and flint, which give the sensation of volume and complexity in a wine predominated by its initial freshness that is maintained over time. The flow in mouth combines the great varietal structure with an acidity that tenses the whole, highlighting the lively character and extending the citric and floral perception, around which the strength of the Grenache Blanc unfolds. Generous and refined, it maintains an elegant, powerful balance, echoing the Terra Alta region.

FOU (ravine) // Narrow pass // Gorge or narrow pass where a stream or rainfall course opens up. Characteristic of the landscape of the Terra Alta area. In 2007, Ramon Roqueta Segales, younger member of a family with a long-standing tradition in the world of wine, decided to embark on a personal project: LaFou Celler in Terra Alta, one of the most authentic wine-growing areas with a long history and major potential.
