Aires de Garbet 2018

You are here

There are four elements which influence the excellence of Garbet’s wines: the Mediterranean, which it looks out over, the warmth of its sun, a slaty soil which gives it character, and the unceasing Tramontane North wind. They make up what we call the “Aires de Garbet” (“Airs of Garbet”).

Designation of origin: 
Empordà
Varietals: 
Garnacha (100%).
Ageing: 
15 months in second use Bordelaise-sized French barrels of Tronçais oak of 300 liters, rest in bottle.
Tasting note: 
Deep cherry-red color with violet tones. It is a wine with a great aromatic variety that reminds us to the Mediterranean vineyard where it comes from: aromatic herbs, red fruits and a balsamic background. In the mouth it is fresh, intense and well balanced. It presents a clear varietal personality, with mature and enveloping tannins and a silky sensation. It is an elegant wine, with a long aftertaste and offers a huge potential for ageing.
Finca: 
Garbet. Twelve hectares on the shore of the Mediterranean, on a mountainous slopy terrain where terrace farming is necessary.
