Availability: In stock
This is the new vintage of an exclusive Spanish red wine from L'Empordà produced by the Castillo de Perelada winery.
This wine is a part of the Ex Ex Collection (meaning Exceptional Experiences), in which the winery has taken a step further its aim of crafting unmasked, terroir-bound wines.
A varietal Grenache, Perelada Ex Ex 14 is sourced from Finca La Garriga, a vineyard composed of gravel and sand soils planted in 1993.
After a manual harvest, the grapes were macerated with the skins for 24 days with pump-overs performed twice a day. After that, this red wine from L'Empordà was transferred into French oak barrels and aged for 15 months.
Finally, Perelada Ex Ex 14 2019 was bottled in May 2021 and aged for a further year before hitting the market.
It is important to decant this Crianza red wine at least 1 hour before drinking.
The red wine Ex Ex 14 from Perelada had a production of only 1,622 bottles.
The red wine Perelada Ex Ex 14 is medium purple with a garnet rim.
Quite complex and expressive, showing the appealing combination of depth, local character and elegance which defines the Grenache wines from Empordà. Wild berries, some hints of flowers, lavender and aromatic herbs, combined with touches of dry earth, some mineral and spicy undertones.
This wine from Castillo de Perelada is tasty, characterful and lively. Crunchy red berries with a deep mineral core and some luxurious notes of Eastern spices, flowers and balsam. The mid palate is focused and well-defined, and the finish is very long and distinctively earthy.
