Red Wine L'Alleu Vinyes Velles 2019
Availability: In stock
The grapes were sorted from organically farmed vineyards with clayey-limestone and slate soils, both highly characteristic of the region.
Each variety was separately vinified. Alcoholic fermentation and maceration lasted from 20 to 30 days, after which this Spanish red wine was transferred into French oak barrels in order to complete malolactic fermentation.
Finally, L'Alleu Vinyes Velles 2019 was aged for 12 months in those same barrels prior to its bottling.
We suggest that you decant this red wine from Montsant 30 minutes before you drink it.
Production around 4,000 bottles.
The wine L'Alleu Vinyes Velles is claret-coloured with some purple tinges.
The nose of this blend of old-vines Grenache and Carignan is clean and sharp, with clear notes of wild berries, underbush and balsam combined with notes of vanilla and spices. Noticeable mineral background.
This red wine from bodega Vendrell-Rived is quite intense on the palate, and it displays a surprising acidity and a remarkable tension. Flavours of jammy black fruit, spices and deep mineral notions. Long spicy finish.
|Our personal opinion||
Excellently priced, L'Alleu Vinyes Velles 2019 is mineral, fresh and fruity. This organic red wine will be a good match for game dishes, cured meats and Manchego cheese.
