Product Description
Details

A wine of the Juan Gil Group, Blau is produced in the DO Montsant.

This expressive Spanish red wine is made from a blend of Samsó (a.k.a Carignan), Grenache and Syrah, all of them grown in different kinds of soils.

Crafted by the Can Blau winery, the grapes were carefully selected and fermented in stainless steel tanks.

After that, Blau 2018 was aged in French oak barrels for a brief period of 4 months, in order not to suffocate the quality of the fruit.
