Remelluri Reserva 2011

Remelluri Reserva

This is the calling card of the estate, representing the bulk of the production. The grapes come from 157 different plots in the three small valleys surrounding the winery.

Vinification All of the grapes were hand selected in the vineyard. The wine was fermented with indigenous yeasts in stainless steel tanks. Aged 20 months in foudres and barrels of various sizes.

Tasting Notes Very elegant with wild herbs, spruce, and thyme with aromas reminiscent of tobacco, sandalwood, and pencil lead. A grenache-forward fingerprint of garrigue and balsamic wild strawberries, showing some secondary aromatic complexities. The palate is grand, well-balanced and gains presence with aeration. Excellent length and great finesse.
