Bancal del Bosc DO Montsant 2014

Varietals: Grenache, Syrah & Cariñena

Alcohol: 14.0%

Grown in red clay with stony limestone soils, this wine is a blend from three different “Bancals” (terraces). The alcoholic fermentation took place over 15 days at a controlled temperature below 29C, and was matured in French & US oak for 6 months.

Tasting note:

Blend of Grenache, Syrah and Cariñena (AKA Carignan). Bright ruby, with some chunky sediment. Medium intensity with violets, raspberry, cranberry, blackberries, toffee, a hint of mint and chalky mineral notes. Dry, med body, med+ acid, med-high alc, with big berry flavours replaying on palate. Tannins are low, ripe and fine with soapy strawberry and cherry cola on a medium finish. This juicy red is ready to drink now and will continue to improve over 2-4 yrs.

Accolades: 2014 not yet rated, but 2013 vintage was awarded Gold in Grenaches du Monde 2015
