Type: Red Wine
Grape: Syrah/Grenache/Cabernet Sauvignon/Samso
Grown from winemaker Carles Alonso’s vines on slate soils at 250 meters altitude in Alt Empordá. Other than a pruning in the winter he leaves the vines along to struggle and fend for themselves- these are as close to wild vines as you can get. The same approach carries through in the cellar where he does as little as possible, with no additions, fining, or filtering. The Negre is fermented and then aged in ceramic tanks before being bottled without SO2.
The savage fruit makes for a fresh wine that is full of wild Mediterranean character, red fruits, balsamic, and lingering licorice notes.
