The Taste

Made from indigenous varieties of grape found in the Montmell mountains and vinified using traditional methods in a Catalan winery that dates back to the 16th Century.

Wild herbs, white blossom and elegant citrus, Asian pear and nectarine fruits. In the mouth there is such gorgeous textured fruit, nectarine, fragrant lemon, chamomile and wild flowers. This is so persistent and intriguing…

The Corky Verdict

Amy –Fresh acidity, beautiful white fruit with an almost nutty character on the finish.

Sam –A really interesting wine made from unusual grape varieties. A hint of Marmalade on the nose, an almost saline/mineral like quality, lots going on here. A quality wine.
