Product Description
Details

Produced by Celler Capçanes, Lasendal Selecció is made from a blend of Grenache, Carignan and Merlot, coming from vines 10 to 40 years of age.

The grapes were separately harvested and vinified. After being fermented and macerated for 2 weeks in stainless steel tanks, this Spanish red wine from Montsant began malolactic fermentation, which was completed in French and American oak barrels of different ages.

Finally, Lasendal Selecció 2018 was aged for 9 months in those barrels, and for a further 6 months in tanks.

28,000 bottles produced.

Nose

Both mineral and fruit-driven, this wine of Celler de Capçanes also suggests some spicy and delicately toasted nuances,with and subtle notes of Mediterranean underbrush, dry earth and flowers.

Palate

Easy-to-drink and smooth, with notes of wild berries, some earthy and mineral remembrances and a dash of flowers. This Montsant red wine has some mild tannins, a good acidity, and a long, gently spicy finish.

Our personal opinion

An excellent value, Lasendal Selecció 2018 is a great introduction to Montsant.
