Availability: In stock
Produced in the Catalan region of L'Empordà, in an area mercilessly battered by a northern wind called Tramuntana, Finca Olivardots Vermell is crafted from a blend of two indigenous varieties and two international ones.
The main component of this plurivarietal Spanish red wine wine is 61% Syrah, complemented with 21% Grenache, 8% Cabernet Sauvignon and a touch of old-vines 10% Carignan. All of the varieties are planted in soils composed of granite and pebble stones.
Harvested in little boxes, the grapes of this red wine from L'Empordà crafted by Vinyes d'Olivardots were cold-soaked and separately vinified in stainless steel tanks.
Then they were gently pressed, after which the wine Finca Olivardots Vermell 2017 was aged for a period of 10 months in 2nd and 3rd year French oak barrels.
The Spanish red wine Finca Olivardots Vermell has a very bright, clean cherry colour with a crimson rim and some violet tinges.
Fresh and expressive, bearing the mark of the Empordà terroir. This blend of Syrah, Grenache, Cabernet Sauvignon and Carignan shows aromas of ripe berries, nuanced by some lactic touches, alongside a touch of spices, a smokey hint and notions of liquorice and cocoa.
Well-balanced and savoury, this Crianza red wine has a refreshing acidity with some ripe, sweet tannins. Fruit-driven, very pleasant and drinkable, with savoury notes of toast and smoke. This wine of Vinyes d'Olivardots has a long finish with a remembrance of cherries, liquorice and dry earth.
