Red Wine Finca Viladellops 2019
Availability: In stock
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
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.
The red wine Finca Viladellops is medium ruby with a garnet rim.
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.
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.
