Product Description
Details

Produced from carefully harvested Grenache grapes,  Mas Llunes Garnatxa d’Empordà Solera is a limited-production Spanish sweet red wine from L'Empordà.

First, the grapes were cold-macerated with the skins before being spontaneously fermented with native yeasts in stainless steel tanks. The fermentation process was stopped by adding wine alcohol.

Then Mas Llunes Garnatxa d’Empordà Solera of bodega Mas Llunes was aged in soleras for a substantial period of time. 

The result is a rich sweet wine from Empordà full of character and complexity.

Only 2,000 bottles produced.

Appearance

The sweet red wine Mas Llunes Garnatxa d’Empordà Solera is deep amber with some copperish glints.

Nose

Aromas of dry apricots, baked apple and raisins, with notes of thyme, lavender and garrigue, and hints of sweet spices, tobacco, black tea and fine wood. This sweet Grenache wine is compelling.

Palate

The sweetness of this wine of bodega Mas Llunes is exquisitely balanced by a phantastic acidity, which provides the wine a steely backbone and prevents it from being flabby. Luscious texture and very long finish, with remembrances of candied stone fruit, dry fruit, citrus peel and dried ginger.

Our personal opinion

The exquisite sweet red wine Mas Llunes Garnatxa d’Empordà Solera will make a fabulous pairing with blue cheeses and dark chocolate desserts.
