Product Description
Details

The varietal Grenache Maimó is a single vineyard Spanish red wine produced from organically grown vines located in Serra d'Almos, south of the DO Montsant.

The 35 to 40-year-old plants are planted in clayey soils and have very low yields - only 3,000-4,000 kilograms per hectare.

Produced by the intellectually inquisitive Josep Grau Viticultor, this red wine from Montsant was meticulously vinified following minimal intervention techniques.

After a triple selection process, the grapes were fermented in truncated cone-shaped vats, and then aged for 14 months in a 2,000-litre Stockinger Austrian oak vat.

Finally, Maimó 2017 was not clarified or filtered before being bottled.

Decant 1 hour before drinking.

Only 3,000 bottles produced.

Additional Information
Appearance

The red wine Maimó has an intense ruby colour. This red wine from Montsant has a medium-high robe, clean and bright.

Nose

This exquisite Grenache from Montsant is nuanced and intriguing. Jammy red fruit, some intimations of red and blue flowers, an eco of citrus, and tips of aromatic herbs over a thin mineral layer.

Palate

On the palate, this single vineyard wine from Josep Grau is less fruit-driven than on the nose. The Mediterranean surroundings take prominence: rosemary, tarragon, laurel and many more, combined with dim spicy notes and, finally, remembrances of raspberries and redcurrants. This Maimó Garnatxa is smooth-textured and very gentle, with round tannins and a good acidity. Long, gently mineral finish.

Our personal opinion

Elegant, sort of understated, even a bit elusive, Maimó 2017 is an uncommon, highly interesting red wine from Montsant.

The mineral notes are starkingly elegant. A first-class red wine.
