LO GRAU Estate
At more than 450m above sea level, the vineyards of Lo Grau de l’Inquisidor, planted 35 years ago, are grown organically and respecting the natural cycles of viticulture. An environmental project for the recovery of fauna and flora that favors biodiversity is being developed on the same farm and, therefore, it is directly involved in the health status of the vineyard and its grapes.
Manual harvest in small boxes of 15Kg. After spending 24 hours in a cold chamber, the grapes are skidded and undergo alcoholic and malolactic fermentation in a 1,500-litre frustoconical foudre, with light daily manual pigeages. Aging in two 500L French oak barrels for 24 months.
Limited production of 1500 bottles.
Dark and intense color, double layer. The nose reveals violets, cocoa and spices. Very rich on the palate, deep, with a lot of volume and structure. Sweet tannins but with a very lively freshness. Long and persistent finish.
