Grapes: Garnacha (Grenache) and Cabernet Sauvignon + a bit of white Cartoixà
Vineyards: certified organic. Sandy loam soils
This wonderful biodynamic and sulfite-free red from Spain is a blend of Garnacha and Cabernet Sauvignon, with all of the flavors that come with those two grapes, red and black fruit; cherries, blueberries, and blackberries. Light bodied with soft tannins, this is a great red even for grilled veggies.
Making of: the grapes are destemmed and macerated with gentle pumpovers, for 6 days at a temperature of 20-22ºC, in stainless steel tanks. Then they are pressed, and the low-pressure part of the juice is used to make this wine (in order to get red wine with a light body and soft tannins). The wine rests in stainless steel, is then blended with some white Cartoixà wine and bottled without fining or filtration. No sulfur added.
Personality: full of red and black fruits – cherries, blackberries, blueberries… Fresh, voluminous, very round, soft and with lovely chewy texture. Don’t hesitate to chill the wine and let it breathe a bit after opening, and then enjoy with cold cuts, light vegetable and meaty dishes or just like that…
