Red Wine Finca L'Argatà 2017
Availability: In stock
The varietal Grenache Finca L'Argatà is made from grapes coming from a single estate located in the highest area of the DO Montsant. Thus, this Spanish red wine is born in an idyllic Mediterranean spot with grapevines surrounded by olive trees several hundred years old.
It is produced by Joan d’Anguera, a winery that completely redefined its approach to winemaking several years ago and became the first company in Montsant to obtain a Demeter seal, certifying its commitment to the principles of biodynamic agriculture
Grown on hills oriented to the north with soils composed of sand and limestone, the grapes of this red wine from Montsant were harvested by hand in the first half of September. Vinified in concrete vats, the wine was subsequently aged in used French oak barrels for 18 months.
Naturally stabilized during the winter season, Finca L'Argatà 2017 was aged for about 6 months in the bottle before its release.
Aearte a minimum of 30 minutes before drinking.
The red wine Finca L'Argatà has a high, clean, bright cherry-coloured robe with a violet rim.
A purebred Montsant of remarkable breadth and purity, this varietal organic Grenache displays a minerality that, though not as thriving as that found in the wines of the neighbouring Priorat, is perhaps more elegant and evocative. Extremely pure notes of raspberries and blackberries, along with hints of coffee, cocoa, lavender and menthol.
Fresh and well-defined, with plenty of subtleness and real refinement, this biodynamic red wine has a medium-high body, a smooth texture and a crisp acidity. Very persistent, it leaves long mineral remembrances, and some intimations of flowers, spices and Mediterranean garrigue. However, this is only the beginning, because this wine by Joan d'Anguera will have much more to offer in the near future. The wine deserves a little patience, as its parts are slowly coming together.
