'Pardelasses' Garnatxa-Caranyena 2016

Size

'For the donkeys' is named for one of two parcels (the other is Amitgers at 422 metres) from which the wine is composed - extremely steep and stony, only accessible for tilling by donkey. 50/50 Garnatxa and Caranyena, grown at just below 400m (Pardelasses). Hand plunged in small tank (1000 litres) then aged 10 months in aged 500 litre wood. The first Pardelasses (2005) was made for Jordi and Sussi's wedding in 2006!

Mixing red and black berries, lots of soft llicorella tells, cedar and herb, cherry, spice and tobacco with fine tannin and good acid freshness.
