The first vintage of this wine. We aim to create a wine with serious ageing potential, power, depth of flavour, but also freshness that is characteristic of wines from this area. Grapes are sourced from a trusted grower whose vines are adjacent to our own vineyard, Lo Grau L´Inquisidor in Gandesa.
The Syrah is picked by hand separately from the garnataxa peluda. De-stemming, and crushing followed by fermentation in stainless steel at 23-26.°C. with daily pigeage. Malolactic fermentation and aging for 10 months in used 300 litre barrels – French, origin. 1,200 bottles produced. The garnatxa peluda is made in a similar way, the only difference is that it is aged in 500 litre barrels.
Very dark and intense, the nose
reveals violets, cocoa and and spices. Hugely rich on the palate, the wine has crunchy but sweet tannins, lively freshness and a long, persistent finish.
