As a reflection of the terroir of the region, we have managed to produce 100% old carignan from our owned of only 3 hectares. Our challenge is still to demonstrate, in a glass, the essence of the carignan, which we consider the most interesting autochthonous variety in Montsant.
For this we selected centenary vineyards with very low yields, an average of less than 800gr per vine. The total production of this wine has been only 300 bottles.
DO Montsant. 3ha in La Serra d'Almos.
Once harvested, the grapes were cold soaked for 24 hours before the alcoholic fermentation took place at controlled temperature of 26oC. Total time on skin lasted 18 days to optimise the extraction of fruit and tannins.
The malolactic fermentation took place in tanks. Then, the wine aged for 12 months in third year old French oak barrels of 300 litres capacity.
The 2014 vintage presents some very subtle
aromas but at the same time powerful once allowed to aerate in the glass. Despite its youth, the wine is very well balanced. We can emphasize the aromas of spices like pepper and cloves, cherry,
raspberry and a touch of thyme.
The palate is complex, highlighting again the Mediterranean aromas, balsamic and dark fruits. It is a wine with a good acidity that is already very integrated and that brings the wine that characteristic freshness.
