Catalan Eagle Red 2020 Organic Garnacha, Carinena & Syrah

Catalan Eagle takes its name from the bird that soars above the nature reserve close to the winery. A top blend!

Tasting Notes 

Weighty with sweet ripe blackberry and raspberry fruit and warm vanilla oak spice. The oak contact gives this wine a new world feel whilst remaining firmly and typically Spanish from the character of old-vine Grenache and Carinena.

Production Method

Sourced from Pepe Fuster's 28ha vineyard in Terra Alta, near Tarragona, Southern Catalonia. The vineyard is organically certified - with stoney limestone and clay soil, and vines grown at 500-600m altitude. A blend of Garnacha, Cariñena and Syrah - with the remaining 15% made up from Cabernet Sauvignon. Two month's contact with oak staves gives a touch of vanilla and added complexity.
