Product Description
Details

This honest Spanish red wine comes from the windswept region of L'Empordà, in northern Catalonia.

Delightfully rugged and full of character, L'Oratori is made from a blend of Grenache, Cabernet Sauvignon and Samsó (Carignan).

After the harvest, the grapes were cold-macerated and fermented in stainless steel tanks.

Then, L'Oratori 2018 by the Martí Fabra winery was aged for 12 months in underground concrete tanks, a fact that gives the wine a rather original character.

Aerate this red wine from L'Empordà 30 minutes before drinking.

Appearance

The Spanish red wine L'Oratori has a clean, medium red-coloured robe with a bluish rim. This red wine from L'Empordà is visually enticing.

Nose

Intense and expressive, this Crianza red wine smells of cherries, blackberries and raspberries combined with notes of liquorice, Mediterranean undergrowth, dry earth and hints of spices and flowers.

Palate

Both deep and youthful, this red wine from Martí Fabra is wonderfully fresh, with a substantial body and a very good acidity. Spices, balsam and minerality dominate the palate, nuanced by some remembrances of black and red fruit. Crunchy tannins and medium, delicately warm finish.

Our personal opinion

An amazing value, L'Oratori 2018 is an extremely versatile wine that will play a stellar part in your summer BBQs.

Excellent with grilled meat. Concentrated and intense. Review by Fred PR (Posted on 26/07/2018)
Oratorium
Value
This wine has the peculiarly earthy, bone-dry Empordà character, but also its character and authenticity. No masks. A pure wine with an exceptional price. Review by Britten (Posted on 22/10/2017)
