Ca NEstruc Negre 2021
Nice ruby colour, clear and bright. On the nose it displays the perfume of fresh red fruits such as currants and raspberries, combined with delicate hints of aromatic herbs from the Mediterranean forest such as lavender and a touch of black pepper. On the palate it is silky, with an aerial texture that invades the palate with freshness and lots of fruit. At the end there are delicious memories of berry fruit, red liquorice and floral notes such as violets.
Grapes are picked by hand and selected in the in the vineyard. Destemming and fermentation for 10-15 days with its natural yeasts in stainless steel tanks from 100 to200 hl at a controlled temperature of 21-28 ºC, with daily pumping-over. Once the alcoholic fermentation has finished, the tank is run-off to make the spontaneous malolactic fermentation afterwards, also in in stainless steel tanks at controlled temperature of 18-20 ºC.
