Product Description
Details

This Spanish red wine is produced by Cooperativa Agrícola Ulldemolis Sant Jaume, a coop based in the DO Montsant.

Made solely from Grenache, Les Pedrenyeres is produced from vineyards planted at altitudes above 600 metres. The area is called "Vall del Silenci" (yes, it means Silence Valley).

The grapes were manually harvested during the second half of October. Once in the cellar, they were destemmed and cold-macerated.

Then Les Pedrenyeres 2016 was aged for 14 months in American oak barrels and for a further 12 months in the cellar before its release.

Aerate this red wine from Montsant 30 minutes before drinking.

Additional Information
Appearance

The red wine Les Pedrenyeres has an intense cherry colour with a ruby rim.

Nose

This varietal Grenache from Montsant is quite intense. PDN exhibits some intense aromas of red fruit and wild berries are sustained by a deep mineral background, and nuanced by notes of sweet spices and balsam.

Palate

Well-balanced, mildly unctuous and bold, this Crianza red wine produced by Cooperative Ulldemolins has some ripe, smooth tannins, fresh acidity and a long finish, with remembrances of raspberries, aromatic herbs and spices.

Our personal opinion

The little-known Les Pedrenyeres 2016 is a superb value that pairs excellently with hearty dishes.

Cooperative wines like this one usually offer a great value for money. This wine gave me a very pleasant sensation. I found the aftertaste particularly nice, a mixture of herbs, juicy fruit and minerality. Review by Coop wine (Posted on 09/11/2017)
