Product Description
Details

This is the new vintage of Finca Viladellops, crafted by Bodega Finca Viladellops from vineyards located in the Garraf mountain range. This is a subzone of DO Penedès that, due to the limestone, fossil-rich soils and vicinity to the sea, produces wines with a distinctive mineral character

Made from vines about 30 years of age, this Spanish red wine is a blend of 85% Grenache and 15% Syrah.

Manually harvested and selected both on site and in the cellar, each variety was separately vinified in stainless steel tanks. After undergoing a pre-fermentative maceration and alcoholic fermentation, this organic red wine went through malolactic fermentation in French oak barrels.

After that, Finca Viladellops 2019 was aged for 12 months in the barrels. Finally, the wine was blended and aged for a minimum of 12 months in the bottle before its release.

We suggest that you aerate this red wine from Penedès 30 minutes before you drink it.

Appearance

The red wine Finca Viladellops is medium ruby with a garnet rim.

Nose

This blend of Grenache and Syrah begins by showing an appealing mineral background -limestone, flintstone and a distant salty remembrance, a clear imprint of the Garraf terroir- evolving into aromas of redcurrants and raspberries, with subtle notes of Mediterranean garrigue and spices.

Palate

Bold and well-structured, with a very good acidity and some crunchy tannins. Crafted with precision, this wine from Finca Viladellops has a long finish, with a delicious salty touch and remembrances of resinous herbs.

Our personal opinion

The amazingly priced Finca Viladellops 2019 shows a completely different side of the well-known Penedès area. And a most interesting one at that.

Value
Excellent value from a town near Sitges, where I live. Notes of bramble, garrigue and redcurrants. Poise and good definition.
