The Wine
This young wine represents Cervoles Celler’s new bet for verticality and purity, no makeup, no masks, just fruit in its utmost expression. A large French oak “Tonneau” of 4.000L slightly shapes its evocative and captivating character. Partially vinified with its whole cluster. Strawberries, blackcurrant and blackberry, citrus jellybeans and deep species cover the whole spectrum of this wine which honours this indige- nous grape variety thanks to the singularity of Cervoles and the mountain viticulture that we practise in altitudes over 700 m.

The Cérvoles Celler winery, which boasts cutting-edge technology, was designed to take into account the size of the various plots, so that each fermenter holds the grapes of a single grape variety and plot. Notice should be taken of the particular loading system employed: the tanks are filled from the bottom, a method that is much more gentle on the berries and avoids early lacerations of the skins.

Their barrels are an aspect to which they pay particular attention. They have made major efforts to employ the right wood and the right coopers and they use slow-growing oak wood and special toasting points. This has led them to determine which types of wood contribute the nuances and personality that they seek for good balance and appropriate complexity in their wines, which ultimately allows them to produce that characteristic bouquet of the Cérvoles wines.

Today, Cérvoles Celler has 300 barrels, most of which are new, although they use one- and two-year-old barrels as well. The barrels are all made from French oak, chosen not so much in terms of the forest where it originates but in terms of the slow-growing oak that each cooper can offer them.
