Details

The flagship Spanish red wine of the Portal del Montsant winery, Santbru is made principally from Carignan, alongside some Grenache and Syrah.

All of the grapevines grow in sandy-limestone soils at altitudes between 700 and 800 metres above sea level, in an area belonging to the DO Montsant.

Harvested by hand and separately vinified according to its plot of origin, the grapes were fermented in deposits and macerated for a long time.

After that, this red wine from Montsant was aged for 12 months in French oak barrels. Finally, it was further aged in deposits so all the parts could fully come together.

Decant Santbru 2015 1 hour before drinking.

Drink until 2025.

Additional Information

Appearance

The red wine Santbru has a bright, high cherry-coloured robe with a purple rim.

Nose

Complex nuances of black fruit and wild berries, typical of a red wine from Montsant, combined with notes of Eastern spices, toast, Mediterranean undergrowth, cocoa powder, menthol, lavender and dry earth.

Palate

Crisp and expressive, this red wine by Portal del Montsant has focus and a clear definition. Smooth-bodied with an excellent acidity and velvety tannins. Toast, garrigue, wild berries, some earthy and mineral nuances, remembrances of balsam and citrus and some hints of flowers. Long, complex finish.

Our personal opinion

Elegant and powerful, Santbru 2015 is a wine which deserves to be widely known and appreciated.

  1. santbru review by Tintagel on 3/6/2019
    Value

    Santbru has, besides the juicy fruit, that-to me-extremely appealing mixture of orange peel and cola which I sometimes find in Montsant reds.

    Excellent wine. Texture is subtle, and it has depth and freshness. Very long finish.
