Product Description
Details

The single varietal Grenache Vd'O 5 belongs to the "Varietals de Terrer" collection, which groups together the top tier products of the Vinyes d'Olivardots winery.

Produced in the northern Catalan region of L'Empordà, this Spanish red wine wine is made from vines planted in 2002 in a estate called Paratge Olivardots, composed of granitic and sandy soils.

Harvested by hand and exactingly selected, the grapes were fermented and then macerated for a long period of time in stainless steel tanks. After that, Vinyes d'Olivardots Vd'O 5 2015 was pressed and transferred into French oak barrels. There, it completed malolactic fermentation and was aged for 16 months in French oak barrels, with frequent pump-overs and punch-downs.

This Empordà red wine was not clarified or filtered prior to its bottling. Before being released onto the market, it was further aged for 12 months in the bottle.

5,000 bottles produced.
