Red Wine Vespres 2022
Availability: In stock
It is made from a blend of Grenache and Carignan, sourced from 50 to 70-year-old, low-yielding vineyards, and Syrah, coming from 15-year-old vineyards. Composed of clay-limestone soils, the organic and biodynamically farmed vineyards, which cover an area of 8 hectares, are located in Capçanes, Marçà and Pla de Falset.
Harvested in 10-kg. boxes, the grapes were destemmed and fermented in concrete vats with indigenous yeasts. After pressing the grapes, half of this Crianza red wine went back to the concrete diposits and the other half went into 2,500-litre Stockinger oak vats. Both were aged for period of 10 months, after which the red wine Vespres 2022 was aged for 10 months before being bottled.
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 2022 is an unashamedly Mediterranean wine full of freshness and finesse.
