This sulfite-free wine Comalats Cabernet Sauvignon is a single varietal Cabernet Sauvignon red wine made from organically grown grapes.
Produced by the Celler Comalats winery in the northern Catalan region of Costers del Segre, the 12-hectare estate is located at an altitude over 700 metres above sea level. This provides for a slow and steady ripening of the grapes.
Soils are composed of clay and limestone. Climate is Continental with some Mediterranean influences.
The grapes were destemmed and fermented for over a period of 18 days in stainless steel tanks.
Then Comalats Cabernet Sauvignon Sense Sulfits Afegits 2015, by the Celler Comalats winery, was aged for 8 months in those same tanks.
It is important to note that no sulfites were added to the wine along the vinification process.
Thus, properly stored (60-75% humidity, temperature between 12ºC-15ºC), the wine will age for some years.
If these conditions are not met, we suggest that you drink the wine within the next twelve months.
Medium-high cherry-coloured robe with a purplish rim.
Fresh, pristine notes of wild berries, green bell pepper, black pepper, undergrowth and balsam.
Yummy and bold, with great tension and expressiveness and a very pure character. Dim mineral notions, ripe berries and spices. Bold tannins, exceptional acidity and long, complex finish.
