Vinya del Metge 2013, 90% Garnacha Roja and 10% Garnacha Negra
A rosé wine with an elegant sparkling colour and lingering mouth. A different rosé from the Empordà. It has an attractive pale pink, slightly salmon, colour. On the nose it is fresh and lively, with primary aromas of the varieties, the Grenache is showing of in a very filling way. The mouth is balanced and very enjoyable. A rosé wine that I wouldn’t mind having a few bottles of on stock, as it might come in handy for the late summer evenings, as a pre dinner glass of wine. Manual harvest in boxes of 20 kg. The grey Grenache comes from La Vinya del Metge in Mollet de Peralada, the red Grenache from La Guilla in Garriguella. Maceration for 48 h for the grey Grenache and 12-24 h for the red Grenache. Great price/quality comparison!
