This is the new vintage of the Spanish red wine produced jointly by the Mas Sersal winery and David Carabén, the frontman of Mishima, a pop band quite famous in Catalonia.
Belonging to the DO Montsant, the vines grow in slate and clayey soils. After a manual harvest, the grapes were macerated and fermented in stainless steel tanks.
After that, the Grenache and the Syrah were transferred into 2nd and 3rd year French oak barrels, while the Carignan went to American oak barrels. All were aged for 7 months.
Finally, Estones de Mishima Set Tota La Vida 2016 was blended, cold-stabilized and gently filtered before its bottling.
Production of 4,000 bottles.
The wine Estones de Mishima Set Tota la Vida has a bright cherry colour with a purple rim.
This gentle red wine from Montsant is quite suggestive. Fresh notes of cranberries and mulberries over a balsamic background, combined with aromas of toast, exotic spices and some mineral nuances.
This blend of red wine from the Mas Sersal winery is smooth and fresh, with a crisp acidity and some smooth tannins. Good balance between fruit and oak, notes of aromatic herbs, black fruit and some toasted hints. Medium finish.
|Our personal opinion||Fresh and uncomplicated, Estones de Mishima Set Tota La Vida 2016 is a great wine to share with friends.|

Although Catalan pop is a punishment for humanity's sins, Catalan wines are so good that not even a crappy singer can ruin the wine project he is involved in. Excellent red, dense and fresh.
A wine that does not digress. Easy to drink and right to the point. Excellent!!
