La Thierrica de Barrí

2018

From a single old barrel gifted to Laureano by his friend Thierry Puzelat. This is a blend of Garnacha from a twenty year old vineyard in El Pinell de Brai and Carinyena from a thirty five year old parcel in the Terra Alta. The Garnacha spent a couple of days on skins, while the Carinyena was given a direct press. Both fermented in cuve and were moved to the old barrique for a short élevage. The result is a wine full of wild, brambly fruit and fistfuls of spice with a wonderful lick of acid on the finish.
