Product Description
Details

The Escoda-Sanahuja winery produces this Spanish red wine in the DO Conca de Barberà, amidst a pristine environment at the very heart of monastic Catalonia.

A radical wine in the best sense of the expression, Les Paradetes was produced following minimal intervention techniques. It is a no-added sulphites wine.

Utterly indigenous, this natural wine is a blend of Grenache and Samsó (a.k.a Carignan).

Harvested by hand, the grapes were destemmed and then fermented in stainless steel tanks with indigenous yeasts. After that, the wine was aged for 8 months in those same deposits.

Finally, this red wine from Conca de Barberà was bottled without having been clarified, stabilized or filtered.

Decant Les Paradetes 2017 a minimum of 30 minutes before drinking.

Additional Information
Appearance

The red wine Les Paradetes has a bright cherry colour with a violet rim.

Nose

Tight and reduced at the beginning, after a while this red wine from Conca de Barberà insinuates some wonderfully mineral, earthy notes that are soon punctuated by remembrances of raspberries, ripe plums, raw cocoa and flowers, with a distant note of citrus, spices and garrigue.

Palate

Delightfully pure and uncompromising, this organic and biodynamic wine from Escoda-Sanahuja conveys a real sense of terroir and some truly original, sort of metallic remembrances, complemented by some mineral notes and aromas of wild berries, aromatic herbs and a touch of bergamot and dried roses. This Crianza red wine has a  phenomenal acidity, lively tannins and long, expressive finish.

Our personal opinion

An exciting natural wine, Les Paradetes 2017 is different, radical and uninhibited. Be sure to decant it before you enjoy it.

Value
This Mediterranean blend by Escoda is refreshing, with poise and a lovely freshness. It has the purity you would expect from a "natural" wine, but none of its shortcomings.
