Product Description

The young Spanish red wine from L'Empordà Oriol dels Aspres is made from a blend of Carignan, Grenache and Merlot.

The two first varieties come from over 40-year-old vineyards. The third from 20-year-old ones. All of the vines grow in soils composed of slate and granite.

Produced by Vinyes del Aspres, the grapes were separately harvested and selected in the vineyard. 

Then they were vinified in stainless steel tanks following the carbonic maceration process.

Finally, Oriol dels Aspres 2020 was blended, clarified and cold-stabilized.

35,000 bottles produced.
