Tanca Els Ulls Garnatxa Negra 2021

Tarragona, Catalunya (Catalonia Cataluña), SpainThis garnaxta is made by Francesec Baronat Fernandez, a descendant of his family's organic vineyards in Tarragona. These grapes come from Finca Mas Gaya, a small vineyard in the village of Picamoixons, at the foot of Miramar Mountain Range, rooted in terraced, calcareous clays. It was native fermented with 10 days maceration in stainless, where it aged for 3 months. Light bodied and lofted, this red streams fine stony raspberry, sapid wild cherries along its slight 11.5% palate, with a sheen of waxen strawberry leather making up the underlay, and a dusting of white pepper on the tart finish. A youthful and joyously pure natural red, primed for enjoying now with a slight chill.Tasted: 28 December 2022Tasted by: Treve RingPrices:
