Vd’O 7 – Gray Grenache in Alluvial and Pebbles
Grape varieties: 100% Gray Grenache
This wine is continuing the Vd’O collection “Varietals de terrer”. It has been made with selected grapes from the old plot Camí de Mollet planted in 1924, grown on a gravelly/sand soil.
Harvest & vinification process
The grapes are picked by hand and collected into small crates of 10 kg. A period of cold soak in a fridge (at 2-4ºC) followed by skin contact maceration during 12 hours. The wine ferments in 500l French oak barrels at low temperature, remaining in contact with its lees for 8 months.
Golden pinkish color.
Fragrance with a smoothness entrance and great complexity with ripe fruit, white flowers, orange peel, dry Mediterranean herbs and spices as pink pepper with a smoky touch.
On the palate it is powerful and balanced, unctuous and elegant with a fresh acidity and a twist of spicy due to the barrel that it gives it great personality.
