You will not find a better example of a creative explosion than with Montgó Garnacha. A novel Spanish wine that energizes the market with fresh new modern style wine. What we mean by “new modern style” is when you open this bottle you will be hit by the fruity aromas typical of Garnacha: juicy jammy blueberry and blackberry delight. We offer you a wine that focuses on the fruit, using just 6 months of aging with French oak so the purity of the fruit is maintained and the oak character just rounds out the delicious fruit. The namesake Montgó mountain inspired founder to launch a good product to meet the highest expectations of the consumer; it inspired our winemaker to create wines rich in character and unforgettable in expression

Winemaking

The grapes were handpicked at the optimum stage of ripeness from mid-September throughout October. Temperature controlled fermentation in stainless steel tanks of 40.000 kilos at 24-28ºC. Up to 16 days maceration. Pressed and racked to stainless steel tanks where the wine underwent malolactic fermentation. It was aged 6 months in combination of 1-2 year old French and American oak barrels. The wine was bottles after fining and filtration.

Tasting notes

Brilliant, dark ruby red with violet hue. Intense aromas of ripe black cherries, blackberry, dark plums and figs. The oak brings richer notes of chocolate and nougat making it more complex. The palate is attacked by the rich concentration of jammy fruits, exotic spices and the acidity balances and refreshes the palate. It is full bodied, with soft tannins and a glass full of new surprises.
