Product Description
Details

This is the new vintage of the Spanish red wine produced jointly by the Mas Sersal winery and David Carabén, the frontman of Mishima, a pop band quite famous in Catalonia.

Named after one of the best known albums of the band, Estones de Mishima Set Tota La Vida is made from a blend of Grenache, Syrah and Samsó (Carignan).

Belonging to the DO Montsant, the vines grow in slate and clayey soils. After a manual harvest, the grapes were macerated and fermented in stainless steel tanks.

After that, the Grenache and the Syrah were transferred into 2nd and 3rd year French oak barrels, while the Carignan went to American oak barrels. All were aged for 7 months.

Finally, Estones de Mishima Set Tota La Vida 2016 was blended, cold-stabilized and gently filtered before its bottling.

Production of 4,000 bottles.

Although Catalan pop is a punishment for humanity's sins, Catalan wines are so good that not even a crappy singer can ruin the wine project he is involved in. Excellent red, dense and fresh.
