The grapes were harvested by hand and, once in the winemaking facilities, 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 2020 is a straightforward, fruit-driven red wine. Pair with light dishes.
As regards the name of the wine, "Cigonyes" means "Storks", which alludes to a successful stork repopulation program undertaken some years ago by the Castillo Perelada winery.
The red wine Cigonyes Tinto is medium ruby with some reddish reflections.
Aromas of strawberries and blueberries, in harmony with oak ageing and floral notes. The blend of Grenache and Syrah is also reminiscent of the Mediterranean herbs from L'Empordà.
Pleasant and well-balanced, this wine from Castillo de Perelada has a nice entrance onto the palate, sustained by a good acidity. Subdued spicy notes become present after a while, alongside remembrances of freshly cut vegetables. Finish is medium-long and clean.
