Availability: In stock
In contrast to the other wines of the Crápula Wines winery, Crápula Soul is a Spanish red wine made from less than a 40% Monastrell, which is blended with variable amounts of Syrah, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Sauvignon.
Vines grow at an altitude of 800 metres above sea level, in an area belonging to the DO Jumilla. Soils are composed of limestone and have low levels of organic matter. Climate combines Mediterranean and Continental elements.
The grapes were destemmed and macerated for over a period of 15 days. Fermentation took place in open wooden vats at a temperature of 29ºC.
After finishing alcoholic and malolactic fermentations, Crápula Soul 2018 was aged for 15 months in fine grain French oak barrels. Prior to its bottling,the wine was clarified with egg whites and decanted through gravity.
Decant this red wine from Jumilla 1 hour before drinking.
The wine Crápula Soul has an intense cherry colour with a purple hue at the rim.
This blend of Monastrell, Syrah, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Sauvignon shows a seductive mixture of Mediterranean woodland notes, aromatic herbs and intense aromas of red berries, combined with hints of strawberry yogurt and spicy remembrances.
This wine of Crápula Wines has a smooth, creamy texture, a powerful body and a remarkable freshness. Bilberries and damson, with notes of garrigue and the delicately spicy traces left by the ageing process. The tannins of this Crianza red wine are spirited, but not untamed. This red wine remains fresh until the end, and leaves a lactic, fruity aftertaste that is simply delicious.
