Availability: In stock
Produced following a minimal intervention approach, this Spanish red wine comes from vines over 50 years old.
Meticulously selected, the grapes were macerated and fermented in 8,000-litre stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature, with pump-downs and punch-overs. After 14 to 16 days, a portion of this red wine from Terra Alta was aged for 5 months in 3rd and 4th year French oak barrels, while the rest remained in the diposits.
Finally, Aucalá Negre 2018 was fined using non-animal fining products. This is thus a vegan red wine.
The red wine Aucalà Negre is cherry red with some violet glints.
Fresh and fruit-driven, this blend of Grenache and Carignan smells of ripe red berries, with hints of flowers, garrigue and a subtle mineral note. There is a dim spicy and toasted background.
Smooth-bodied and agile, this wine from bodega Serra i Barceló has some slim tannins and an excellent acidity. Very savoury, it has a long finish with some balsamic and toasted remembrances.
