Details

Crafted by Finca Viladellops, Turó de Les Abelles is an organic Spanish red wine made from a blend of 50% Grenache and 50% Syrah.

The grapes come from 25-year-old vines grown in the calcareous, fossil-rich soils of the Garraf Massif, a region belonging to the Penedès DO

Picked by hand and transported to the cellar into 15 kg. boxes, after two selection processes the grapes underwent a pre-fermentation maceration in open vats at a controlled temperature.

This process was followed by alcoholic fermentation. Then, Turó de les Abelles 2015 was aged for 12 months in French oak barrels. After blending the best samples, the wine was aged in vats, bottled in April 2017, and finally aged for a minimum of 14 months in the cellar before its release onto the market.

A limited-edition wine. Production of only 3,200 bottles.

We recommend that you decant this organic red wine from Penedès at least 30 minutes before you drink it.

Drink until 2024.

 

Additional Information

Appearance

The organic red wine Turó de les Abelles has a medium-high cherry robe with a garnet rim.

Nose

This blend of Grenache and Syrah from Penedès has a good balance between intense notes of ripe, almost jammy black fruit -blackberries and blackcurrants- and some deep, mineral undertones coming from the ancient marine soil of the Garraf Massif. After a while, the wine displays notes of spices, flowers and hints of wet undergrowth.

Palate

This organic red wine by Finca Viladellops has a considerable structure, though it behaves gently on the palate. Texture is supple and agile, with juicy red fruit, liquorice, Mediterranean underbrush and some well-integrated spicy notes. Tannins are ripe and sweet, and acidity is rock-solid. Delicate finish with some enticing mineral remembrances and subtle wooden notes.

Our personal opinion

Pure and utterly Mediterranean, Turó de Les Abelles 2015 by Finca Viladellops is a true delight.

    A crisp red wine from an unlikely place. I like the flinty minerality. Great!

    Sen-sa-tio-nal wine. Pure, enticing and deeply mineral, this must grow in a first-class terroir to be this good.
