This is the new vintage of Llavors. As usual, this Spanish red wine from L'Empordà is made from a blend of grape varieties.
The 2020 vintage is composed mainly of old-vines Samsó (Carignan), complemented with Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc.
Produced 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 2020 was subsequently aged in French, Hungarian and Romanian oak barrels for over a period of 5 months.
As usual, the label of this red wine from L'Empordà is a reproduction of old local magazines or newspapers.
The red wine Llavors is medium ruby with a violet rim.
This blend of Samsó, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc 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.
Fresh, straightforward and pleasant, this red wine of La Vinyeta has a good acidity, ripe tannins and a well-balanced structure. Delicately spicy, this wine from has a long finish with remembrances of red plums and herbs over a toasted background.
