Cartoixà Vermell
Adding to cart… The item has been added

Personality: The image of spending a childhood in a Mediterranean village! Peaches, apricots, hazelnuts, quince, honey, dried fruit; the palate is generous, well-structured, and offers crunchy tannins and refreshing citrus hints. Best served well-chilled, with the lees decanted if you prefer.

Vineyard: Certified organic. Sandy loam soils

Making of: The grapes are destemmed and macerated for 32 days at low temperature (between 15-18ºC). Once the maceration is finished, the berries are gently pressed, and the wine ages on the lees for about 9 months in stainless steel tanks. The wine is bottled with a small percentage of its lees to improve the evolution of the wine over time. No fining or filtration, no sulfur added.

Winemaker's Note: This wine is made from a special clone of Cartoixà (the local Tarragonese name for the typical Catalonian white grape Xarel.lo), the Cartoixà Vermell (or Xarel-lo Rosado) whose berries have a reddish skin color. The perfect material for a skin contact wine!
