Description

FRESH AND VERSATILE
Our youngest wine is a fresh burst of red fruits and Mediterranean forest aromas. It is vibrant and open on the palate — the perfect partner for meals and laid-back Moments.  Grapes are sourced from three vineyards resulting in a balanced wine which reinforces the accessible character of what we consider a regional wine; the presentation card of our DOQ Priorat.
IN THE VINEYARD
Varieties: 60% Garnacha Tinta and 40% Samsó (Carignan or Mazuelo).
Density of plants: From 3,000 to 3,500 vines per hectare.
Training techniques: Gobelet and trellis-trained system. Grapes are harvested by hand and put in small boxes.
Average rain: 350-500 mm.
Sun exposure: 2,800-3,000 hours per year.
WINEMAKING
The wine is fermented in stainless steel tanks of 5,000 liters. The different varieties in the coupage are vinified separately to get the maximum expressive potential of each grape. The wine is aged for 6 months in French oak barrels of 225 and 500 liters. Part of the barrels are new, some are two years old.
TASTING NOTES
Intense red with purple tones. It has a very fresh aroma, full of flowers and fruits sensations that are confirmed in the palate.  It is cheerful and lively, and expresses citrus flavours and memories of summer bone fruits, such as peach and apricot. In the end it appears so vibrant and enjoyable that makes us want to drink more.
FOOD HARMONIES
Attractive and versatile, it is perfect for any time, alone or with any meal. It goes very well with cured and smoked meats, and cheeses. Also with tomato-sauced pasta dishes and with grilled meats: sausage, blood sausage, lamb, burger… Take it with your favourite pizza: it’s a real discovery. And it is a simple and extraordinary pleasure with just a slice of toast with a splash of extra virgin olive oil. We recommend to drink it fresh, at 14ºC-16ºC.
