Serral: Hillside in Catalonian.
The parcels, situated at an altitude where the temperature is cooler, are perfect for dry wines. The schist soil offers mineral characteristics, elegance and strength to the wines of this terroir. The high density of the rootstock per hectare (6 000 rootstock/ha) allows the vines grow roots deep down underground where they find limited water supplies.
Appellation: Collioure AOP
Grape Varieties: 15% Syrah, 80% Grenache noir, 5% Mourvèdre
Maturing: Maturing for 18 months in vats (70 %) and in barrels (30 %).
The wines are fermented in vats with a cold maceration beforehand and a hot fermentation afterwards.
Dark color with intense aromas of red berries, of licorice and of vanilla. Melted tannins on the palate. The ripened Grenache offers fig notes on the finish and the Mourvèdre coasts the wine with pleasant smoky notes. Easy to drink.
