Product Description
Details

This is the new vintage of Acústic, a consistently good Spanish red wine from Monstant.

It is made from 65% Carignan and 35% Grenache, coming from vines 35 to 70 years of age.

The vineyards of the Acustic Celler winery are spread over different locations across the Montsant region. They are planted at an altitude between 300 and 700 metres above sea level, in sandy soils with low levels of organic matter.

The grapes were carefully selected on site, destemmed and cold-soaked for 15 days. Then they were gently crushed and, after 24 hours, the wine must was fermented and transferred into 2nd year French oak barrels, where Acústic 2019 completed malolactic fermentation and was aged for 10 months. It was neither filtered nor clarified prior to its bottling.

Decant this red wine from Montsant 30 minutes before drinking.

Additional Information
Appearance

The red wine Acústic is medium puple with a violet rim.

Nose

Aromas of juicy cranberries and mulberries, with hints of spices, balsam and flowers. This blend of Carignan & Grenache also suggests some nice toasted remembrances over a mineral background.

Palate

Fresh and straightforward, with wild berries, a delicate minerality and notes of Mediterranean undergrowth. This wine from Acústic Celler has some yummy tannins, a very good acidity and a long finish.

Our personal opinion

Winemaker Albert Jané knows how to convey the spirit of Montsant. Acústic 2019 is a great expression of the land at a very affordable price.

This has been my "table wine" -I just love the expression- for many weeks. It has character, intensity and a good definition.
