Produced by the Mas Sersal winery, Estones GS was harvested during the first half of October.
Brought to the cellar in little boxes and separately vinified, the grapes were cold-soaked and fermented in stainless steel tanks. Then the wine underwent malolactic fermentation and was aged for 14 months.
The Carignan was aged in American oak barrels, while the Grenache was aged French oak barrels.
Then Estones GS 2013 was blended, delicately filtered and aged for a further months before its release.
We recommend that you decant this red wine from Montsant 1 hour before you drink it.
Drink until 2022. Decant 1 hour before drinking.
The red wine Estones GS has a high cherry-coloured robe with reddish tinges.
This Spanish red wine is deep and characteristic. A real hommage to the Montsant terroir, it exhibits clean aromas of cranberries and damson, nuanced by a spicy halo, a dash of toast and leather and a distinctive mineral and earthy background.
Well-balanced and fresh, this blend of Grenache & Carignan (GS) is gently warm and smooth-textured. The red fruit and the remembrances of Meditarrenan garrigue define the palate. Acidity is crisp and lively, and the wine ends with a mineral note.
|Our personal opinion||
An honest Montsant, Estones GS 2013 is a great companion for roast recipes and game dishes.
