Availability: In stock
This is the new vintage of Llavors. As usual, this Spanish red wine from L'Empordà is made from a blend of grape varieties.
Crafted by La Vinyeta, the grapes come from estate-owned vineyards planted in Mollet de Perelada, a town belonging to the province of Girona.
Fermented at a controlled temperature, Llavors 2017 was subsequently aged in French, Hungarian and Romanian oak barrels for over a period of 5 months.
The label changes every year. It is made from old local magazines or newspapers.
Drink this red wine from L'Empordà over the next 3-4 years.
The red wine Llavors has a high, clean, very bright cherry-coloured robe with a violet rim.
This Crianza red wine suggests some lively aromas of ripe fruit, along with subtle wooden notes and some remembrances of aromatic herbs and roasted vegetables over a mineral background. Both Cabernets, the Merlot and the Samsó grapes mingle harmoniously.
Fresh, straightforward and pleasant, this red wine by La Vinyeta has a good acidity, ripe tannins and a well-balanced structure. Delicately spicy, this wine from L'Empordà has a long finish with some remembrances of red plums over a toasted background.
