The new vintage of Lasendal comes with a new packaging.
This Catalan red wine from Montsant is produced by Celler Capçanes.
Separately harvested, the grapes completed alcoholic and malolactic fermentation in stainless steel tanks and then in American and French oak barrels.
After that, this wine from Montsant was aged for 9 months in those barrels and for a further 6 months in tanks.
Drink until Lasendal Selecció 2014 until 2020.
Intense cherry colour with a violet rim.
Spices, smooth toasted nuances, black and red fruit and subtle notes of Mediterranean underbrush mineral and flowers.
Easy-to-drink and smooth, showing notes of wild berries, some earthy and mineral remembrances and a dash of flowers. Mild tannins, good acidity and long finish.
