Availability: In stock
Made from a blend of 75% Grenache and 25% Cabernet Sauvignon, Ónra Negre is a Spanish red wine produced in the northern Catalan region of Costers del Segre. The vineyards are certified organic by the CCPAE (the Catalan board of organic agriculture.)
Besides, this wine is produced following the principles of biodynamic farming by Celler La Gravera, which also has a Demeter certification.
Carefully harvested and meticulously selected, the vinification process began with the cold-soaking of the Grenache grapes for a period of 3 days. Then each of the grape varieties was separately fermented with selected yeasts in stainless steel tanks.
Finally, Ónra Negre 2016 was aged for 12 months in new and 2nd year French oak barrels.
Aerate this organic red wine from Costers del Segre 30 minutes before drinking.
The red wine Ónra Negre has an intense cherry colour with a garnet rim.
Mild and suggestive, this organic Crianza red wine begins with aromas of raspberries and damson, nuanced by some spicy hints and notes of flowers, toast and vanilla. This blend of Grenache and Cabernet Sauvignon works like a charm.
Powerful and palate-coating, this red wine from Celler La Gravera shows prominent notions of ripe red fruit, some hints of balsam and spices and some mineral hints. Full-bodied, but also crisp and focused. Good acidity, delicious tannins, and a long, mineral finish.
