The grapes were harvested by hand and, once in the winery, they were destemmed and transferred into stainless steel vats, where they realized a pre-fermentation maceration. Then they were fermented at a controlled temperature, and after that this Spanish red wine was transferred into 2nd year French and American oak barrels, where it was aged for 4 months.
Nicely presented in a Burgundy bottle, Cigonyes Tinto 2018 is a straightforward, fruit-driven red wine from L'Empordà.
As regards the name of the wine, Cigonyes (Storks) alludes to a successful stork repopulation program undertaken some years ago by the Castillo Perelada winery.
The Spanish red wine Cigonyes Tinto presents a lively violet colour with ruby reflections.
This appealing red wine from Castillo de Perelada suggests aromas of red and black fruit, in harmony with oak ageing aromas and balsamic notes. The blend of Grenache &Syrah is also reminiscent of some native Mediterranean herbs from L'Empordà.
Pleasant and well-balanced, this red wine from L'Empordà has a nice entrance onto the palate, accompanied by a good acidity. Some subdued ageing notes become present after a while, alongside some smooth, freshly cut vegetable notes. Cigonyes Tinto has a silky finish with remembrances of wild berries and aromatic herbs.
