Product Description
Details

An homage to the Montsant terroir and to the mother of Toni Ripoll, owner and head winemaker of Celler PasconaLa Mare de Pascona is a varietal Grenache wine.

The grapes come from the oldest vineyards of the winery, composed of sand and granite soils. They have a high pH, a feature which reduces the wine acidity. Due to that fact, this Spanish red wine is particularly fresh and supple.

After fermenting in truncated cone-shaped stainless steel tanks, this Crianza red wine completed malolactic fermentation in 225-litre French oak barrels, where it was also aged for 9 months.

Finally, La Mare de Pascona 2019 was naturally stabilized and gently filtered before bottling.

Aerate this Montsant red wine at least 20 minutes before drinking.

Appearance

The red wine La Mare de Pascona is medium ruby with some purple tinges.

Nose

Complex and delicate, this old-vines Grenache carries some lively aromas of boysenberries, wild strawberries and blue flowers, with hints of rose petals, vanilla, toast, dry earth and underbrush.

Palate

Elegant and slender, with a linear character and a delightfully pure nature. Red berries, with tips of menthol and aromatic herbs, dim mineral undertones and a dash of spices and flowers. Very good acidity, velvety tannins. This wine of Celler Pascona has a long, complex finish.

Our personal opinion

Sleek and wonderfully drinkable, La Mare de Pascona 2019 will pair excellently with roasted meats.
