Product Description
Details

Made from vines located near the town of Marçà, L'Efecte Volador Mágnum is a Spanish red wine belonging to the Montsant DO.

The wine is a blend of Grenache & Samsó (a.k.a. Carignan), planted more than thirty years ago in soils composed mainly of llicorella (black slate) and sauló (decomposed granite).

Crafted by Josep Grau Viticultor, the grapes were manually harvested and brought to the cellar in little boxes. After a careful selection, they were partially destemmed and subsequently fermented with indigenous yeasts and macerated in concrete vats.

After that, L'Efecte Volador 2017 Mágnum was aged for 6 months in those same containers.

Decant 30 minutes before drinking. Drink until 2022.

Appearance

The red wine L'Efecte Volador Magnum has a very bright, clean, medium-high cherry coloured robe with a garnet rim.

Nose

Fresh and fragrant aromas of blackberries and blackcurrants, along with a perfume of violets. On the background, this red wine by Josep Grau Viticultor insinuates some notions of toast, cocoa and tobacco, and some deep mineral undertones.

Palate

Defined by its freshness and agility, this red wine from Montsant has some mild tannins, an extremely inviting texture and a refreshing acidity. Long and crisp, with a persistent finish that leaves remembrances of ripe fuit, toast, tobacco and liquorice.

Our personal opinion

The red wine L'Efecte Volador 2017 Mágnum is honest, expressive and even a bit sophisticated. Unbeatable price.

An amazing value. This has everything you might look for in a wine. Good fruit, texture, a solid structure, a nice, fresh acidity, and an inviting finish. Review by Delmonico's (Posted on 24/10/2017)
