CELLARS DE CAPCANES- La Nit de les Garnatxes Clay

CELLARS DE CAPCANES- La Nit de les Garnatxes Clay

Varieties: 100% Red Garnacha

 

Vines: 15-40 years old. Altitude: 250 – 500 m.


Harvest: Handpicked, mid September.

 

Soil: Clay. This terroir was originated by continental and marine
sediments. The color is due to the high content of iron and its
oxidation. Very compact soils with low water filtration and medium
acidity.
 

Vinification: Controlled fermentation temperature (27-29 ºC).
 

Maceration: 21-35 days. Alcoholic and malolactic fermentation in
stainless steel vats.
 

Aging: 6 months in concrete vats before bottling.
 

Production: 4,000 bottles (0.75L)
 

Analysis:

14,5 % ABV
4,7 g/l tartaric acid
2,8 g/l residual sugar


Taste note: Intense cherry colour. This is a very complex wine with
very marked notes of forest undergrowth and tannins that “stick” in
the mouth. A truly wild wine!


Food pairing: Garnacha is a very versatile grape when it comes to
pairings, and this is no exception. Although, considering the intensity
and fuller body this Garnacha from Clay soil offers, we suggest you
open it with grilled meats, lamb, casseroles, and stews.
