Acústic Celler, Auditori DO Montsant 2017Regular price €59.00
A full, darkly seductive and mineral wine from Montsant in Catalonia.
This powerful red is made from pure Garnatxa fruit from vines between fifty-five and eighty years old that grow in the geologically varied but equally harsh conditions of the Marçà, Capçanes and Cornudella del Montsant plots around the Montsant mountains.
The name of the wine and the suggestion of an amphitheatre in the label design suggest that this is a wine that demands attention and contemplation—a ‘good ear’ for the resonances and harmonies of expert winemaking using what Albert calls ‘Magic Garnatxa’.
This organic wine is neither fined nor filtered after its twelve months of aging in year-old French oak, and its authentic expression of its origins in full, flavoursome poise and finesse repeatedly garners ninety or more points out of a hundred from such diverse reviewers as the Spanish Guía Peñin, France's Guide Gilbert & Gaillard and Robert Parker's Wine Advocate in the USA.
