Red Wine Clos Fontà 2017
Availability: In stock
The grapes were harvested by hand, meticulously selected and separately vinified. First, they were macerated and fermented in stainless steel tanks under controlled temperature.
After that, Clos Fontà 2017 was transferred into French oak barrels of different sizes, where it was aged for 16 months. Finally, it was aged for a further 36 months before it was launched onto the market.
Decant this Priorat red wine 40 minutes before drinking at the very least. Bear in mind, though, that a longer decanting period will greatly enhance your drinking experience.
Pair this Reserva red wine with foie, casseroles and game dishes.
The wine Clos Fontà is medium purple with a cherry rim.
This blend of old-vines Grenache and Carignan shows the understated elegance than one finds in most of the world's great wines. Pristine aromas of red fruit, with a stroke of Mediterranean underbrush, some subtle floral nuances and a smoky note. Oaky aromas are subdued, and there is a very deep, though subtle mineral background.
Rich and textured, this wine from Mas d'en Gil is a distillation of the Priorat terroir. Effortless and confident, with succulent ripe fruit, hints of flowers and aromatic herbs, some ripe tannins, and a deep mineral core. Crisp acidity, and very long finish with some mineral and earthy remembrances.
