Constantly swept by the Tramuntana, a relentless northern wind, the old vines of this Spanish red wine were harvested by hand, and then the grapes were gently pressed and cold-macerated for some days.
After that, they underwent a traditional vinification and were aged for 12 months in French, American and Hungarian oak barrels.
Drink Puntiapart 2016 until 2026. Decant 1 hour before drinking.
As always, this red wine from L'Empordà comes with a playful label, which has received several LAUS design awards over the years. Reminiscent of a zoetrope machine, if we turn the bottle on its axis, we will see a sequence of images in motion.
The red wine Puntiapart has an intense, bright red colour with a garnet rim.
Beginning with a surprisingly mineral note, this red wine by La Vinyeta soon exhibits a dash of ripe fruit, extremely lively and almost jammy, underpinned by a deep earthy background and some aromas of clove and cinnamon, with hints of flowers and Mediterranean garrigue.
Fresh and yummy, this Crianza red wine from L'Empordà has a smooth texture and some mild tannins. Cocoa, violets, some earthy and mineral notions, and notes of balsam and spices. Good acidity and long, complex finish with a suggestion of menthol.
