Finca Garbet 2007 (with case) 75cl. Finca Garbet
EARTH. Finca Garbet has a slaty soil, poor in organic matter. In its struggle to reach water, vines develop very deep roots. This effort is later reflected in the structure and the elegant mineral nuances of the wine. FIRE. Many sunny days and a scarce pluviometry allow the grapes to reach the optimum ripeness point. Castillo Perelada regulates the vines’ hydric stress with a drop irrigation system. AIR. The strong winds of Tramontana reduces the presence of microorganisms in a natural way. The fresh marine breeze called Garbí moderates the temperature and slows down the grapes’ ripening process. WATER. The sea’s proximity has a thermoregulatory effect on Finca Garbet’s vines. It avoids the extreme temperatures, but at the same time reinforces the insolation with its reflection of the solar light. Designation of Origin: Empordà. In the north-eastern corner of Spain. To the east, it runs to meet the sea. The climate is Mediterranean, with the influences of strong winds, particularly the Tramontana, which can reach speeds of up to 120 km an hour. The average temperature is 16°C and there is ample rainfall – 600-700 mm – mainly in winter. There’s a wide heterogeneity of soils. Varietals: Syrah (90%), Cabernet Sauvignon (10%). Vineyard: Garbet. Twelve hectares on the shore of the Mediterranean, on a mountainous slopy terrain where terrace farming is necessary. Harvest: Hand harvested using 20 Kg boxes. Each sector of the vineyard was harvested twice or thrice. Winemaking: Fermented on the skins, with two daily handmade battonages. 30 days of maceration at a controlled temperature of 25ºC. Ageing: Fifteen months in new Bordeaux barrels made of French Tronçais oak. The rest in bottle. Graduation: 14.60% by Vol. Free SO2: 19 mg/l. Total SO2: 55 mg/l. Total acidity: 3.40 g/l (s.a.). Volatile acidity: 0.89 g/l (a.a.). Residual sugar: 0 g/l. Type of bottle: Bordeaux, terroir, antique colour, 75 cl and Magnum. Tasting note: Dark ruby red in colour. Its wide range of aroma reminds the vineyard where it was born (Mediterranian herbs, spices, fruits, balsamic notes and minerals). In the mouth it is fresh, wide, enveloping, with ripe tannins. It has a long after-taste and a very good ageig potential.
