Description

Ardèvol Anjoli 2016

Ardèvol Anjoli is a fresh, fruit forward red wine from the Priorat region of Spain. Opaque ruby colour with a violet hue. The bouquet is brimming with ripe dark berry, liquorice, cherry and tobacco aromas. The medium to full bodied palate is dry with chewy tannins and a juicy acidity. Blackberry, cherry and currant flavours with a touch of vanilla, liquorice and minerals.

A blend of 40% Garnacha, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot and 10% Syrah. The fruit comes from Celler Ardèvol's vineyards in the Priorat region of Spain. The Ardèvol family has been growing vines in the village of Porrera since the 13th century. Directly carved on the rock, the old family cellar is placed in the basement of one of the oldest and most picturesque country houses in the village.

Fermentation in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks. The wine ages for 16 months in third and fourth fill French oak barrels.

Ageing potential: up to 10 years from vintage.
