Tempranillo, Grenache and Cabernet Sauvignon
Barrel fermented and aged 12 months in New French oak.
Denomination of Origin Costers del Segre, Les Garrigues
Several vineyards (Gravel pit, Txell and Sorts Vell) fill the mountain scene, offering us a plot mosaic drawing. Various orientations and altitudes grant a potential to achieve an optimal ripening on the grapes always maintaining a relevant freshness.
Cold skin macerations guarantee its fruity balance. One year ageing in tonneau of 4000L (Grenache) and in new French oak barrels from various cooperies (Radoux, Dargaud&Jaegle, Saury...) gives a long ageing potential to this wine with an elegant profile to be enjoyed from its bottling.
Mountain Viticulture located at an altitude between 700 and 800 metres, nestling at the foothills of the Serra de la Llena, natural border within Priorat region and Serra del Montsant, an area in contrast between Mediterranean and Continental climate, with scarce rain average and always soft winds that guarantee healthy conditions on the vineyards. Soil structure predominates with great water retention, rich in gravels and a marly texture optimum for quality viticulture. The elevation of our vineyards and the temperature contrast in Garrigues region impacts on the grape skin thickness, encouraging the concentration of anthocyanins and tannins whilst enhancing acidity and freshness.
