Vinyes Domènech Bancal del Bosc Tinto 2021

Montsant, Catalunya (Catalonia Cataluña), SpainVinyes Domènech is a family project started Joan Ignaci and his wife, Rita, in Capçanes, in the south of Priorat. Together with their sons, they biodynamically farm 15 hectares of recovered old-vines vineyards. This is 85/15 Garnacha / Samsó (AKA Carignan) from red clay and calcareous soils. After a native ferment, this aged in both French oak and stainless for 6 months. Wild and stony, this fuller red is infused with scrubby herbs and wildflowers, and wrapped with fine, sticky tannins, laced with pink peppercorn. There's a beauty mountain freshness here, easily lofting garnacha's 14.5 degrees. A lovely pairing for pork / wild mushrooms.Tasted: 28 February 2023Tasted by: Treve RingPrices:
