Crushed & Cured
Perelada, 5 Finques Reserva, DO Empordà, Spain, 2018
Deep cherry red colour. Its aroma is reminiscent of red fruits and spices, with some balsamic notes and a toasted background. In the mouth it is fresh, well structured and balanced. Its tannins are plentiful but really well integrated. This is a wine with a great personality and a long finish.
A traditional red wine making with a long maceration and a controlled fermentation at 25ºC. 16 months in Bordeaux barrels, 50% fine American oak and 50% Allier French oak. Matured in bottle for at least 2 years before release.
The 5 vineyards that this wine comes from are situated around 40-150m above sea level, with an average age of 21 years. Conventional viticulture and double royal training system, the soil consists of slate slopes, sandy plains and gravel. This diversity of the soils allows them to harvest grapes with an enormous range of aroma and flavour nuances and to produce complex wines full of character.
