Why we love this
A delicious full-bodied natural wine that is a beautiful expression of the Garnacha grape variety. Fermented in an amphora and aged in used French oak barrels for a minimum of 6 months this stunning wine is bold and tannic with a sweet aftertaste.
This is an indigenous red found only in Catalonia, grown at high altitude on old vines. It is a seriously special wine, with only 2,000 bottles ever made.
Winemaker Joan Franquet farms the ancient vineyards biodynamically with minimal intervention. Joan's vineyard is more than just a winery, it’s a real adventure, he discovers the most difficult places for growing grapes whilst also trying to revive almost extinct varieties.
The perfect accompaniment to beef, lamb, game and rich pasta dishes.
Nose: Dark fruit, chocolate and undergrowth.
Palate: Smooth and velvety, with perfectly blended tannins. Wonderful flavours of blackberries, plums, spices and herbs.
