Both varieties come from vineyards planted not far from the Mediterranean sea, following the old Via Augusta, Spain's most important Roman road.
Separately harvested and vinified, after a 12-day skin maceration both wine musts were fermented and then aged for 15 months in 300-litre French oak barrels.
After that, this winefrom Penedès was gently clarified and delicately filtered.
Finally, Augustus Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot 2015 was aged for a further 6 months before its commercial release.
Production of less than 10,000 bottles.
Drink this red wine from Penedès from now until 2023.
The wine Augustus Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot has a bright, clean, intense cherry colour with a garnet rim.
This crianza red wine from Penedès is intensely aromatic, with aromas of ripe red fruit, alongside hints of spices, flowers, menthol and balsam. This blend of Cabernet and Merlot shows an excellent balance.
Intense notes of meaty red and black fruit, combined with some lactic and spicy aromas, touches of liquorice and some earthy and toasted remembrances. This wine by Avgvtvs Forum has a very good acidity, smooth, ripe tannins and long, fruity finish.
