Product Description
Details

One of the two flagship wines of bodega Abadía de Poblet, a brand of Grupo Codorníu, Abadía de Poblet El Tossal de la Salut is the only varietal Grenache red wine produced in DO Conca de Barberà, southern Catalonia.

A distinctively fresh Spanish red wine, the grapes come from a single, north-oriented vineyard with slate and red clay soils located in the Prades mountain range, on the boundary between Conca de Barberà and Priorat, at 700 metres of altitude.

Hand-harvested in mid October, once in the cellar the grapes were gently crushed and fermented whole bunch in concrete diposits with wild yeasts. After that, the red wine was macerated for 23 days with the skins and aged for 14 months with periodic pump-overs.

This is an uncommon and captivating red wine from Conca de Barberà.

Aerate some time before drinking.

Pair with meat recipes and cheeses.

Nose

Intense aromas of ripe cherries, strawberries and aromatic herbs literally burst out of the glass, giving way to red flowers, undergrowth, peppercorn and earth. This varietal  Grenache is simply intoxicating.

Palate

This wine from bodega Abadía de Poblet is phenomenally fresh and very expressive. Light-bodied, balanced and very sensuous, with pristine red fruit, an intense remembrance of garrigue -a feature of the wines from Conca de Barberà- and a long finish.

Our personal opinion

From the heart of monastic Catalonia, Abadía de Poblet El Tossal de la Salut 2016 is a showstopper.
