Product Description
Details

Produced by the Escoda-Sanahuja winery, Coll del Sabater is a highly interesting Spanish red wine from the southern Catalan region of Conca de Barberà.

Produced following a minimal intervention approach to winemaking, the 2018 vintage of this organic and biodynamic has a most unusual composition.

The main part of it is Cabernet Franc, a varitey which winemaker Joan Ramon Escoda daringly decided to complement it with a 20% of Parellada, a local white grape of great aromatic refinement.

Harvested by hand and partially destemmed, the grapes were macerated and fermented together in clay amphorae using only indigenous yeasts. Then this natural red wine was aged for 7 months on lees in the amphorae.

Prior to its bottling, Coll del Sabater 2019 was neither filtered nor clarified.

Decant this red wine from Conca de Barberà at least 20 minutes before drinking.

Additional Information
Appearance

The red wine Coll del Sabater has an intense cherry colour with some ruby glints.

Nose

Slightly raw and pleasantly wild, this organic red wine really needs some aeration to unfurl. Some earthy and mineral notes, evolving into a fleshy red fruit nuanced by flowers, herbs and spice. This blend of Cabernet Franc and Parellada is remarkably original.

Palate

Delicately warm, but also full of energy and confidence. Some succulent red fruit, a note of cocoa and bitter herbs, and a first-rate acidity make for a very fresh no added sulphites wine. Gentler and more engaging than ever, this wine from Escoda-Sanahuja has a long finish with a mineral and pithy aftertaste.

Our personal opinion

Tirelessly fine-tuned by its makers, Coll de Sabater 2019 is an unimpeachable natural red wine from Conca de Barberà.

A Bordeaux blend made in a natural wine style. Pure, immensely enjoyable, finely crafted. Very important: leave it 2 hours in the decanter before you drink it.
