The grapes come from 20 to 40-year-old vines planted in the town of Esparraguera and owned by the Ca n'Estruc winery.
Harvested at an optimal ripening point, once in the cellar the grapes were destemmed, gently crushed and underwent pre-fermentation maceration.
Then the wine must was fermented in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature.
Finally, L'Equilibrista 2015 was transferred into new medium toasted French oak barrels from Allier, where it was aged for 14 months.
Drink until 2022. Decant 30 minutes before drinking.

The wine L'Equilibrista of the Ca n'Estruc winery has an intense, clean cherry colour with purple tinges and a violet rim.
This elegant Crianza red wine from Catalunya shows notes of ripe bilberries, blackberry liqueur, liquorice and unberbush. Delicate wooden notes, some lactic touches, toffee, coal and cocoa. Finally, as the wine opens it shows some mineral undertones and hints of rose pepper.
Well-structured and savoury, with ripe, this red wine by Ca N'Estruc velvety tannins and a long, mouth-cleansing acidity. Notes of ripe blackberries and ripe plums, along with some hints of toast and chocolate. Medium-long finish.
