Munt Roca Selecció 2015

€22.00

Elaboration: The different varieties are fermented separately. Maceration is quite long, at a temperature of 24 ºC to 26 ºC, followed by the malolactic fermentation. Once this process is completed, the wine is aged in oak between 4 to 6 months and then the coupage and the bottling are carried out.

General characteristics: Dry red wine, with the ripe grape bouquet typical of the Priorat Grenache.

Recommendations: Drink at temperatures between 16 ºC and 18 ºC, up to eight years after elaboration.

Quantity

Grape varieties: 60% Grenache, 20% Syrah and 20 % Cabernet Sauvignon.

Type of soil: “Llicorella” (Slate) from the Carboniferous Period) covered by a small limestone layer.

Origin: 100% from the Munt Roca property in El Molar (Priorat).

Alcohol content: 13.5 to 15% by vol.

Pairing: A wine characterised above all by its enormous versatility. It combines very well with foods with floral and aromatic herbs touches, pepper, cinnamon and spices in general, balsamic touches, toast or pastries, and also with meat and robust and meaty fish. Concerning the most suitable cooking methods, it is difficult to make a selection… it is a wine conceived to accompany all types of food! But we could single out stews and casseroles, spicy dishes and risottos.
