Product Description
Details

Produced solely from over 65-year-old Carignan vines, La Miloquera Carinyena Vella is a varietal Spanish red wine from bodega Vendrell-Rived.

Situated in the village of Marçà, in the heart of DO Montsant, the organically farmed vineyards have clayey-limestone and slate soils.

Hand-harvested and meticulously selected, this Crianza red wine was vinified in stainless steel tanks for a period of 25 days.

Then the red wine La Miloquera Carinyena Vella 2020 was transferred into French oak barrels and aged for 12 months.

This deep, terroir-bound red wine from Montsant will pair excellently with hearty meat recipes.

Decant this organic red wine at least 1 hour before drinking.

Appearance

The red wine La Miloquera Carinyena Vella is deep ruby with some bluish reflections. 

Nose

Although still in a developing stage, this varietal Carignan already shows a remarkable complexity and nuance. Wild berries, bitter cocoa, Mediterranean herbs and black tea, with hints of clove and cinnamon and some earthy and mineral undertones.

Palate

Intricate and characterful, this wine from Vendrell-Rived has an excellent definition and great potential for improvement in the bottle. Linear and very fresh, with sinewy tannins, a steely acidity and a smooth texture. Long finish with some berryish, spicy and mineral remembrances.

Our personal opinion

A serious effort, La Miloquera Carinyena Vella 2020 showcases the distinctive personality of the Carignan variety.

Still young, but already showing amazing qualities. Super balsamic, lots of garrigue here, with razor-sharp acidity and quality fruit. Endless finish.
