Production: Small project started in 2016 by three young local entrepreneurs, Susanna, Sergi and Roger. A young team that has proved a nice success of making wine while enjoying the challenge and passion that has been transmitted to them since their childhood, having grown up between vines, from their own families dedicated to the wine business. They made monovarietal wines from the black and white Grenache, the autochthonous variety par excellence and the most planted in the Terra Alta area, a viticultural area to the south in the province of Tarragona, here the vines enjoy the balance of the Mediterranean climate with continental influence, low pluviometry and soils composed of chalky-clay very poor in organic matter, that creates the perfect growing environment of the Grenache.
They work their own land, vines between 25 and 35 years-old located in the village of Batea, at an altitude of 350-450 meters. At the moment they are making their wines at a friend’s Celler until they make a reality the building of their own Celler.
The Rialla Gatnatxa Negra was harvested in the middle of October, after a thorough control of maturation, to achieve the optimum balance between ripeness and fruit. Harvested manually and going through a selection process of the best grains. Fermented in a 3000 liters stainless steel tank at controlled temperature of 18 -21ºC. Aged in 500-liter French oak barrel for 4 months. It has been clarified with peas protein that brings out more their Mediterranean character.
Despite their short existence they have already been awarded with a silver medal in the Grenaches du Monde 2018 for both their white and red grenache.
Tasting Notes: Lively young red wine, red color bright and clean. Lovely aromas of fresh red fruit and subtle liquorice notes. Youth-full palate full of red fruit flavors, refreshing acidity and a nice touch of tannins well integrated. Good finish and great value.
