Terra de Falanis "Llenca Plana" Red Blend 2017 - Montsant, Spain
Varietals: Carignan 70%, Grenache 30%
Rich and complex, with a lengthy finish. Intense red and black fruit flavors are balanced with smooth tannins and fresh acidity.
The winery is a new modern construction that was built to make the wine as naturally as possible, avoiding pumps and heavy duty machinery. The winery has a grape reception area where the hand picked small crates of grapes arrive and follow the careful temperature controlled process with gentle pressing after being de-stemmed before maceration and fermentation in new small stainless steel tanks. There is a small separate barrel room where the wine is aged and also temperature controlled. Upstairs there is living space for the family, so that in the warmer summer months when there is more work preparing the harvest and testing the progress of the grapes they are 100% of the time on hand with the village being a whole 3 minutes walk away. The winery is built to be able to produce a maximum of 120,000 bottles - being the full production from their own vineyards.
