Red Wine Vespres 2018
Availability: In stock
Produced by Josep Grau Viticultor, the new vintage of Vespres Vinyes Velles is similar to the 2017 one.
A blend of 60% Grenache, 30% Carignan - coming from 50 to 70-year-old, low-yielding vines - and 10% Syrah, this Spanish red wine is made vineyards are scattered over the towns of Marçà, Capçanes and Falset, in the DO Montsant.
Harvested in 10-kg. boxes, the grapes were fermented in concrete vats with indigenous yeasts. After that, Vespres 2018 was aged for 14 months in 2,000-litre oak vats.
Aerae this red wine from Montsant some time before drinking.
The wine Vespres has a lively cherry colour with a purplish rim.
Quite pure, this blend of Grenache, Carignan and Syrah conveys aromas of wild berries, notions of forest and undergrowth, deep mineral and metallic-like sensations, some hints of wet earth and a dash of spices and flowers.
The entrance onto the palate of this red wine of Josep Grau Viticultor is fresh and velvety, carrying some notes of spices and red berries, intertwined with some earthy and mineral notions and a floral remembrance. Vibrant tannins, with a very good acidity and an elegant finish.
