Red Wine Coll del Sabater 2021
Availability: In stock
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 2020 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 boldly decided to complement it with a 20% of Parellada, a local white grape of great aromatic finesse.
Harvested by hand and partially destemmed, the grapes were macerated and fermented together in clay amphorae using only indigenous yeasts. Then this no added sulfur red wine was aged for 7 months on lees in the amphorae.
Prior to bottling, Coll del Sabater 2021 was neither filtered nor clarified.
Decant this red wine from Conca de Barberà at least 20 minutes before drinking.
The red wine Coll del Sabater is deep ruby with some maroon glints.
Slightly raw and pleasantly wild, this low-sulfites red wine 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.
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 natural wine. Gentler and more engaging than ever, this wine from Escoda-Sanahuja has a long finish with a mineral and pithy aftertaste.
