Product Description
Details

Produced by Josep Grau Viticultor, this Spanish red wine is made in the DO Montsant.

A blend of 60% Grenache, 30% Carignan and 10% Syrah, Vesrpres Magnum is produced from old vines, 50 to 70 years of age, planted in the towns of Marçà, Capçanes and Falset.

Harvested in little boxes, the grapes were subsequently vinified in concrete tanks at a controlled temperature.

After that, Vespres Magnum 2018 was aged in 2,000-litre Austrian oak vats for over a period of 14 months.

Decant this red wine from Montsant 30 minutes before drinking.

Nose

Expressive and vital, showing notes of wild berries and strawberries, with some mineral undertones and an original metallic remembrance. This blend of Grenache, Carignan and Syrah has an underlying layer of balsam, flowers and Eastern spices.

Palate

Fresh and energetic, this wine from Josep Grau Viticultor has a meaty, smooth body, some crunchy tannins, a very good, refreshing acidity and an overall wild, fuity character. Long, elegant finish with some mineral remembrances.

Mr. Josep Grau seems to be improving his wines year after year. He is always trying to bring freshness and drinkability to his wines, and until now he has clearly succeeded. This is a typical blend of the region, garnacha and carinena; what's not so typical is the suppleness and grace of the wine. And what a price!!
