Red Wine Vespres 2020
Availability: In stock
A blend of Grenache, Carignan and Syrah, this Crianza red wine is produced from 50 to 70-year-old, low-yielding vineyards grown in mostly clay-limestone soils and located in the villages of Marçà, Capçanes and Falset. Agriculture follows the principles of organic and biodynamic farming.
Harvested in 10-kg. boxes, the grapes were fermented in concrete vats with indigenous yeasts. After that, Vespres 2020 was aged for 14 months in 2,000-litre oak vats.
Aerae this red wine from Montsant some time before drinking.
The wine Vespres is medium ruby 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.
|Our personal opinion||
There is no doubt that Josep Grau knows his craft. Vespres 2020 is an unashamedly Mediterranean wine full of freshness and finesse.
