Vinya Cucut 2015, DO Montsant

We have changed trademark and label of Finca el Romero. We are pleased to introduce Vinya Cucut. We have changed the image but the wine remains the same. Our challenge is still to project the essence of the Carignan grape which Franck Massard believes is the most exciting autochthonous variety. For this we have selected low yielding vines of approximately 50 years old, an average production per vine of 1.5 kg.

Origin
DO Montsant. A selection of vineyards from Masroig, Guiamets, Darmós and Garcia, mainly on clay-limestone soils.

  • Grape Varieties: Carignan
  • Alcohol content: 14.5%
  • Acidity: 5.4
  • PH: 3.52

Vinification
Once harvested, the grapes were cold soaked for 24 hours before the alcoholic fermentation took place at controlled temperature of 26ºC. Total time on skin lasted 18 days to optimise the extraction of fruit and tannins.

Ageing
The malolactic fermentation took place in tanks. Then, the wine aged for 12 months in third year old French oak barrels of 300 liters capacity.

Tasting notes
Vintage 2015 shows very similar aromas if compared with the previous one and despite its youth, the wine is very well balanced. There are spicy aromas like pepper and clove, cherries, raspberries and a hint of thyme. A complex palate, with herbaceous and red berries flavours. The wine has a good acidity that is very well integrated and provides the wine its usual freshness.
