35,000 bottles produced.
The wine Oriol dels Aspres has a bright cherry colour with a purple rim.
This blend of Grenache, Carignan and Merlot suggests aromas of ripe red fruit, with hints of apricots, medlars and Mediterranean undergrowth.
This young red wine of Vinyes dels Aspres has a fresh and lively texture. Juicy notes of raspberries and strawberries, alongside garrigue, peaches and menthol. Mild tannins, crisp acidity and long, delicate finish.
