A radical wine in the best sense of the expression, Les Paradetes is made from indigenous grapes and produced following minimal intervention techniques.
Harvested by hand, the grapes were destemmed and then fermented in stainless steel tanks with indigenous yeasts. After that, the wine was aged for 6 months in French oak barrels.
Finally, this red wine from Conca de Barberà was bottled without having been clarified, stabilized or filtered.
Decant a minimum of 30 minutes before drinking.
Drink Les Paradetes 2014 from now until 2022.
The red wine Les Paradetes has a bright cherry colour with a violet rim.
Tight and reduced at the beginning, after a while this biodynamic red wine from Conca de Barberà begins to display some wonderfully mineral, earthy notes that are soon punctuated by remembrances of raspberries, ripe plums, raw cocoa and flowers, with a distant note of citrus, spices and garrigue.
Delightfully pure and uncompromising, this organic wine by Escoda-Sanahuja conveys a real sense of terroir and some truly original, sort of metallic remembrances, complemented by some mineral notes and aromas of wild berries, aromatic herbs and a touch of bergamot and dried roses. Phenomenal acidity, lively tannins and long, expressive finish.

This Mediterranean blend by Escoda is refreshing, with poise and a lovely freshness. It has the purity you would expect from a "natural" wine, but none of its shortcomings.
