Product Description
Details

Produced by Albert Jané, a young, but already prestigious winemaker, Ritme is the entry-level wine of the Acústic Celler.

The 2018 vintage is composed of 70% Carignan (coming from 20 to 80 year old vines,) and 30% Grenache, coming from old vines.

The vineyards are planted on the trademark llicorella (slate) soils in different areas within the DOQ Priorat.

After a traditional vinification, this Spanish red wine was aged for 10 months in 2nd, 3rd and 4th year oak barrels

Not filtered or clarified before bottling, Ritme 2018 will greatly benefit from some aeration.

Pair this red wine from Priorat with stews and hearty legumes recipes.

Appearance

The red wine Ritme has a clean, medium-high cherry colour with a violet rim.

Nose

Intense aromas of fresh blackberries and damson, combined with remembrances of violets, spices and balsam over an intensely mineral background, typical of a blend of Carignan and Grenache.

Palate

Pleasant and drinkable, this Priorat red wine from Acústic Celler has a smooth texture and an bridled intensity. Remembrances of menthol, bramble fruit and some mineral and balsamic nuances. Well-balanced acidity, savoury tannins and long finish with some remembrances of Mediterranean garrigue.

Our personal opinion

Fresh and characteristic, Ritme 2018 by Albert Jané is an exceedingly versatile wine.
