Vendrell Rived "L'Alleu" Montsant '17


Vendrell Rived "L'Alleu" Montsant '17

The Catalan wine zone of Monsant is neighbors with the more famous Priorato. Grapes employed in the region are Garnatxa & Samso (Grenache & Carignan). Vendrell's vineyards are farmed organically without synthetic fertilizers, pesticides or herbicides. They are continuously plowed not only for weed management, but to encourage deep root growth. By doing this, the grapes will inevitably show the underlying character of the terroir but also be more resistant to drought. The winery of Josep Maria Vendrell is perfectly suited to his artisan stature. It is modern, but manageable by one person. With the help of his father and an old family friend in the vineyards, this is truly hand-made wine that undergoes minimal handling in the cellars and leaps out of the glass once released from its bottle.This big and inky bottle shows lots of big blackberry fruit, along with some spices that naturally come from the region.
