2016 Nas Del Gegant Escoda-Sanahuja Red Blend

Conca de Barberà, Spain

Nas del Gegant is made up from a blend of Cabernet Franc, Carignan, Grenache and Merlot (ratios remain a mystery). On the nose, red and black ripe fruit with floral notes and a mineral touch stand out. In the mouth, it is easy to drink, light and with a long and persistent finish. Earthy, stalks, chalk with raspberries and strawberries. Be sure to vigorously decant this wine 1 hour before drinking.

About the maker

Having set out in 1997 to tend to vineyards organically, Celler Escoda-Sanahuja went a step further in 2003 to move to biodynamic and are now part of the Natural Wine Producers (or PVN) in Spain.

From 2007 onwards Nas Del Gegant have stopped using any sulphur in their wines, harvesting according to the lunar calendar. Joan Ramon Escoda is always experimenting in the cellar. Every year not only will the grapes express themselves differently, Joan might do so as well. He incorporates variations of concrete and steel tanks for most wines, whilst also using amphroas as of 2003. The family cultivates over ten hectares of olive groves, almond trees and vines, as well as a vegetable garden for their own sustenance.
