Casajús Barrica

Casajús Barrica - The grapes for this wine were of exceptional quality and fully ripe. The grapes were fermented in small stainless steel tanks with a capacity of 5,000 litres, which helped keep the temperature under strict control. The wine then rested for 14 months in French and American oak barrels. In bottle, the wine remains to gather and soften the tannins of the barrel and variety, which also ensures refinement and harmony overall.

The wine has a beautiful, vibrant and very intense garnet red colour. The nose is full of ripe grapes, spices, flowers, minerals and toasted aromas from the barrel. The palate is powerful, full and soft. The tannins of the grape mingle with those of the barrel and the finish is a good reminder of red fruit, mineral notes, spice and toast.

The wine is ready to taste and will continue to improve in the coming years. It is a perfect pairing for the new cuisine based on cheeses, sausages, all types of roasted meats and stews.
