Product Description
Details

A blend of old-vines Grenache (70%) and Carignan (30%), L'Alleu Vinyes Velles is produced by the Vendrell-Rived winery in DO Montsant.

The grapes were sorted from over 50-year-old 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 2020 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.

Additional Information
Appearance

The wine L'Alleu Vinyes Velles is medium purple with some lilac reflections.

Nose

This blend of old-vines Grenache and Carignan is clean and well-defined, with lively notes of bilberries and damson, underscored by aromas of underbrush, balsam and spices over an intense mineral background.

Palate

This red wine from bodega Vendrell-Rived is intense and flavourful, with jammy black fruit, spices and some earthy and mineral intimations. It has some fine grained tannins, a palate-cleansing acidity and a long balsamic finish.

Our personal opinion

A wine worth discovering, L'Alleu Vinyes Velles 2020 punches well above its price range.

This is like a not-so-hearty Priorat. It costs less but it is very good.
