Product Description
Details

With a production a little over 3,000 bottles, Estones GS is the flagship wine of the Montsant-based Mas Sersal winery.

As usual, this Spanish red wine is made from a traditional blend of Grenache and Samsó (Carignan).

The grapes were brought to the cellar in little boxes and separately vinified, the grapes were cold-soaked and fermented in stainless steel tanks. Then the wine underwent malolactic fermentation and was aged for 14 months.

The Carignan was aged in American oak barrels, while the Grenache was aged French oak barrels.

Then Estones GS 2015 was blended, delicately filtered and aged for a further months before its release.

We recommend that you aerate this red wine from Montsant about 40 minutes before you drink it.

Appearance

The red wine Estones GS has a high cherry-coloured robe with reddish tinges.

Nose

This Spanish red wine is deep and characteristic. A real hommage to the Montsant terroir, it exhibits clean aromas of cranberries and damson with a spicy touch, a dash of toast and leather and a distinctive mineral and earthy background.

Palate

Well-balanced and fresh, this blend of Grenache & Carignan (GS) is gently warm and smooth-textured. The red fruit and the remembrances of Meditarrenan garrigue define the palate. Acidity is crisp and lively, and the wine ends with a mineral note.

Our personal opinion

An honest Montsant red wine, Estones GS 2015 is a great companion for casseroles and game dishes.
