Production: From natural and ecologic viticulture comes El Cairats Selecció, a blend of Grenache and Samsò, autochthones varieties from a single plot, 3 ha of own vines planted in 1971 on stony, clay soil in the hills overlooking the municipal district of Els Guiaments at an altitude of 180 - 250 meters above sea level. The grapes are harvested by hand and follow a strict selection process both in the vineyard and at the cellar.
Fermentation takes place in small stainless-steel vats with the skins between 15 – 20 days and spends 12 months in 225-liter French oak barrels.
Clarified with egg white albumin and bottled by decantation according to appropriate lunar phases.
Tasting Notes: Elegant nose of red fruits, balsamic, spicy and smoky touches and a mineral background. Broad and soft on the palate, with a refreshing acidity and fine almost sweet tannins.
Note: It will drink nicely during the next 8 -10 years.
