The story behind Rendé Masdéu Vi de fang ("mud wine") is an inspiring one.
In 2019, a flash flood of the Francolí river completely destroyed the main facility of bodega Rendé Masdéu, located in L'Espluga de Francolí, DO Conca de Barberà. Covered with mud, the bottles salvaged from the wreckage were released soon afterwards and sold out immediately. The enthusiastic customer response gave the owners the strength to cope with the tragedy, and reinforced their determination to rebuild what the flood had demolished.
This blended Spanish red wine is made from Garrut (aka Monastrell), sourced from young vineyards around 10 years old, and Syrah, coming from 25-year-old vineyards, grown in clay-limestones and slate soils near the Protected Natural Space of Muntanyes de Prades.
Hand-picked and destemmed, the grapes were macerated before fermenting in French oak vats. After that, this red wine from Conca de Barberà was aged for 7 months in the vats.
Finally, the red wine Rendé Masdéu Vi de Fang 2020 was aged for some months in the bottle before hitting the market.
Pair with meat rice dishes, BBQ'd meat and cold cuts.
The red wine Rendé Masdéu Vi de Fang is deep ruby with some reddish reflections.
Somewhat tight at first, after a while this blend of Garrut (Monastrell) yand Syrah suggests wild berries and black truffles, with herbs de Provence, red flowers and a peppery and mineral note.
