A young, vibrant, and unaged wine made from 90% Macabeo, 5% Garnacha Blanca, and 5% Verdejo. The vines thrive at an altitude of 400 meters in Camarena (Toledo). As is the philosophy with all of Canopy’s wines, Ganadero Blanco is an expression of the terroir. Using sustainable viticulture, with no additives, the grapes fully express themselves and unleash the beautiful bouquet of the Sierra de Gredos.
Straw yellow in colour, clear and bright. Floral and grassy notes complemented by hints of red and white fruits, fennel, strawberry and peach fill the nose, truly surprising in such a young wine. On the palate, it’s silky and surprisingly reminiscent of pineapple with mineral notes. Elegant with well-balanced acidity, its freshness is enticing whatever the season.
Ganadero Blanco pays tribute to women in the world of wine.
Canopy is among the top wineries producing organic wines and recuperating ancestral Garnachas located at a high altitude in the beautiful "Sierra de Gredos” not far from Madrid.
Belarmino Fernandez and Alfonso Chacon are the hardworking creators of these wines that, as the famed Michel Bettane said in Shanghai, represent the “renaissance of wines in Spain”.
The vision of these oenologists, interested in what the terroir and the grape represent, has placed their wines at the same level as the best low-intervention French wines, perfectly defined by the term “vin de garage”.
Their wines derive their authenticity straight from the land, by selecting the best vines, caring for them sustainably, clearly identifying each plot with only one or two barrels, and blending them in the bottle to create something out of this world.

88 Points - Luis Gutiérrez (Robert Parker reviewer for Spain)
Notes from Luis Gutiérrez:
It is an easy-drinking and straightforward white blend. It has white fruit and flower aromas and a tasty, supple palate; easy to drink and quite pleasant.
