GARNATXA DE CÉRVOLES
An amazing experience of fresh fruit
Denomination of origin Costers del Segre, Les Garrigues
This young wine represents our new bet for verticality and purity, no makeup, no masks, just fruit in its utmost expression. A large French oak “Tonneau” of 4.000L slightly shapes its evocative and captivating character. Partially vinified with its whole cluster.
Strawberries, blackcurrant and blackberry. Also citrus jellybeans and deep species cover the whole spectrum of this wine, which honors this indigenous grape variety thanks to the singularity of Cérvoles and the mountain viticulture that we practice in altitudes over 700 m.
We recommend to chill this wine between a 12o and 16o temperature. Excellent for pairing with a duck comfit and sweet contrasted dishes.
Mountain Viticulture located at an altitude between 700 and 800 metres 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 climatic conditions, with scarce rain average and always soft winds that are able to guarantee healthy conditions on the vineyards. The soil structure has a great water retention, rich in gravels and an optimum marly texture for quality viticulture. The elevation of our vineyards and the temperature contrast in Garrigues region impacts on the grape skin thickness, enabling the concentration of anthocyanins and tannins and enhancing acidity and freshness.
