Additional Information
Appearance

The wine Vespres has a lively cherry colour with a purplish rim.

Nose

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.

Palate

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.

Our personal opinion

There is no doubt that Josep Grau knows his craft. Vespres 2018 is an unashamedly Mediterranean wine full of freshness and finesse.
