Description

Proyecto Garnachas La Fosca Del Priorat 2018

Proyecto Garnachas La Fosca Del Priorat is part of a collection of wines. The collection of wines ‘Proyecto Garnacha de España’ is a tribute to a variety that has historically been forgotten due to its complicated viticulture and difficult production. They have been rescued from obscurity thanks, in large part, to current consumer preferences.

Intense ruby red colour with deep edges. The interesting bouquet exudes aromas of wild strawberries, minerals and a touch of oak. A rich and tasty wine due to its great balance, elegance and harmony. Dark cherry and berry flavours mingle with cedar spice, herbs and a 'crushed rock' minerality. Its right amount of acidity emphasises its drinkability and leaves a pleasant aftertaste.

Mostly Garnacha with small amounts of Cariñena, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. The fruit comes from a 60-year-old vineyard with predominately slate soils and an altitude of 310 metres on the terraced slopes of Molar (Tarragona). 

 

Manual harvesting of the grapes. Maceration for 2 weeks, controlled fermentation in stainless steel vats. The wine ages for 10 months in new and used French oak barrels.
