Tasting Notes

Cherry red colour with brick red glints. Distinct aroma with intense well balanced fruit and light mineral hints which envelop lactic and ripe fruit tones. Expressive, filling the palate with balanced fruit and mineral flavours that reflect the above mentioned aromas. Despite being a young wine gentle hints of tannins are appreciable which will allow the wine to develop in bottle. Ideal to be drunk alone or to accompany “tapas” with “pa amb tomàquet”- catalan style rustic bread with fresh tomato and olive oil.

Characteristics of the harvest: Harvest characterised by climatic extremes, a short cold winter, a rainy spring and a dry, hot summer resulting in an intense fruit production. Grapes slowly mature from flowering, depending on the variety.. The pronounced thermal contrasts give the wine a high alcoholic and acidic level resulting in fresh wines.

Vinification: Hand picked in the field and harvested in 15kg boxes then cooled to 5ºC. Computerised controlled fermentation at 25ºC in one 50Hl deposit. Free run punching down and maceration with skin during 20 – 25 days. Malolatic in deposit with the fine lees. Reduced pressure pressing to allow for a longer press.

ABV 14%

Ageing: Although it is a young wine is rests with its lees for 4 months allowing it to obtain the intense aroma of fresh fruit.

Bottling: Fined with egg white (so not vegetarian). Bottled respecting the lunar calendar (biodynamic).

Wine profile: Flor del Montsant 2012 is a fresh, lively and fruity wine. A typical mediterranean wine , with a cherry red colour, smooth and balanced in mouth.
