The Anguera family have been farming in Montsant for seven generations. It’s not unusual for winemakers to take a different direction to their parents, but bar pulling up all their old vines, Joan and Josep have totally rethought their project and realigned their vision over the last 10 years. They started in the vineyards: working biodynamically and achieving Demeter certification in 2011; they top-grafted traditional varietals Grenache and Carignan on to existing Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon vines; and are removing trellising in favour of lower yielding gobelet vines. With fruit quality improving they were able to move to low intervention in the winery, using whole cluster ferments, old oak, and dramatically reducing sulphur use. The results are mind-blowing – balanced and elegant biodynamic wines.
The Grapes for this label are picked early in the morning when the temperature is 12-14 degrees. Fermentation is 70% whole cluster in concrete using natural yeasts. Wine is then moved to French old oak barriques where it ages for 12-14 months. The wine is blended and bottled without fining or filtration.
"The nose is perfumed and savoury with dried flowers. The palate is medium-bodied and very balanced with a touch of white pepper, good acidity, and very good length. "
