Product Description
Details

The wine Espelt Sauló is the entry-level Spanish red wine wine of the Celler Espelt winery.

It is made from a traditional blend of Grenache (known in the region as Lledoner Negre), and Carignan, coming from vines grown in soils of decomposed granite, known in the region as Sauló.

Produced in the Empordà region, the grapes were harvested at their optimal ripening time.

Once in the cellar, they were crushed and macerated for some time to extract colour and aromas. Afterwards, Espelt Sauló 2020 was fermented in stainless steel tanks.

Finally, this red wine from L'Empordà was clarified and stabilized prior to its bottling.

Additional Information
Appearance

The red wine Sauló is medium cherry with a garnet rim.

Nose

Aromas of ripe red and black fruit, namely raspberries, blackberries, cassis, wild strawberries and cranberries, typical of a blend of Carignan and Grenache. On the background of this young red wine, there are some undertones of rosemary and thyme, wet earth and balsam.

Palate

Fresh, accessible and pleasant. This wine from Celler Espelt has some lively tannins, exultant suggestions of blackberries, strawberries and balsam, and a crisp, refreshing acidity. Medium finish with some remembrances of red fruit.

Our personal opinion Utterly Mediterranean, Espelt Sauló 2020 is a lighthearted, cheerful red wine that is perfect for laid-back meals.
