Product Description
Details

Coming from the southwestern Catalan region of Terra Alta, Bàrbara Forés Negre is made from a blend of Grenache, Syrah and Carignan.

Sourced from vineyards located near Gandesa, the wine capital of the region, the grapes were meticulously selected and macerated for 25 days. Then this Spanish red wine was fermented for 18 days in stainless steel tanks.

After that, Bàrbara Forés Negre 2019 was aged for 12 months in 300-litre French oak barrels from Allier.

Pair this red wine from Terra Alta with rice dishes, baked fish recipes and meat dishes.

This blended organic red wine of the Bàrbara Forés winery is a truly astounding value.

Nose

Juicy, fruit-driven, and expressive, the blend of Grenache, Carignan and Syrah suggests aromas of ripe strawberries, blackcurrants and cassis, alongside notes of aromatic herbs, toast and spices. There is a dim mineral background with a smokey touch.

Palate

This wine of Celler Bàrbara Forés winery is intense and balanced, with a high acidity and some crunchy tannins. Remembrances of wild berries, herbs de Provence, spices and undergrowth. Medium, balsamic finish.

Our personal opinion

Fresh and savoury, Bàrbara Forés Negre 2019 is a stunner from Terra Alta.

When I first tasted this wine I could hardly believe the price. Almost as intense a Priorat, though less characteristic, it is incredibly good anyway.
