Product Description
Details

Produced by Celler de Capçanes, famous for its Kosher wines, Cabrida is a small-production, multi-award-winning Spanish red wine from DO Montsant.

It is made from low-yielding, 60 to 110-year-old Grenache vines planted on granitic and clayey soils at altitudes between 500 and 600 metres.

Meticulously harvested and selected, the grapes completed both alcoholic and malolactic fermentations in 500-litre French oak barrels.

After that, Cabrida 2020 was aged for 12 months in light and medium toasted 3,000-litre French oak vats.

Finally, this red wine from Montsant was transferred into stainless steel tanks to stabilize it for a period of 2 months.

It is important to decant this Crianza red wine at least 1 hour before drinking.

Only 3,500 bottles produced.

Appearance

The red wine Cabrida is deep ruby with some purplish tinges.

Nose

This varietal Grenache is both sensuous and subtle. Exquisite notes of raspberries and Morello cherries, with deep mineral undertones and remembrances of wet earth, resin and Mediterranean garrigue. Oak ageing shows in subtle hints of of cocoa, spices and toast.

Palate

Lush and intoxicatingly Mediterranean, this wine from Celler de Capçanes also has depth and mistery. Texture is intricate and detailed, with a superb acidity, lively tannins and a still unfurling complexity. Finish is very long, with lively red fruit and some mineral and balsamic notes.

Our personal opinion

One of the best Grenache wines from Catalonia, Cabrida 2020 is a rare jewel.

Great Montsant
Value
A deeply classic Mediterranean wine -Gott sei dank. Fortunately, the Capcanes winery has not tried to resemble Burgundy at all costs -truly a modern winemaking plague-and has not been lead astray by all the "natural wine" drivel either. All in all, a juicy and fleshy wine, with depth and, as the French say, mâche.

I would recommend this to the lovers of deep, intense, fruit-forward wines with an earthy twist.
