The grapes come from young vines planted on mild and steep slopes, composed of the slate soils typical of Priorat.
Alcoholic fermentation took place in stainless steel tanks, with gentle pump-overs and punch-downs, and lasted 17 days. After that, this red wine from Priorat was macerated for 12 days and underwent malolactic fermentation in the tanks.
Finally, Embruix de Vall Llach 2018 was aged for 12 months in 3rd and 4th year French oak barrels of different sizes.
Decant 1 hour before drinking.
The red wine Embruix de Vall Llach has a deep cherry colour with a violet rim.
Deep and intense, this blend of Grenache, Carignan, Merlot, Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon carries some juicy aromas of raspberries and blackberries, with hints of liquorice, graphite, spices and aromatic herbs over a dark mineral background.
Still unfolding, this Crianza red wine has an enticing minerality, good focus, smooth tannins and a superb acidity. Black fruit, mineral, garrigue, spices and cocoa. This wine from Celler Vall-Llach has a long finish reminiscent of balsam, toast and liquorice.
