To make Vall Major, our flagship wine, we look for young wines showing all the fruity potential of the Garnacha grape, both red and white. We source from a variety of vineyards, each with an average age of 20 years and with a crop of about 3 kilos per vine.
Selected vineyards more than 25 years old. The grapes are crushed, steamed and fermented in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature with autochthonous yeasts and with minimal intervention, only daily reductions until the end of the alcoholic fermentation. Afterwards, grapes are bleached in concrete tanks where malolactic fermentation begins without the addition of lactic bacteria.
Colour: Ripe cherry red with violet edges.
Flavour: Intense flavour reminding red fruit such as strawberries, cherries, wild red fruit and even with some spiced fine tones and a touch of black liquorice.
Taste: Fleshly, tasty on the palate, with marked and sweet tannins from the grape. A background of ripe red fruit and liquorice. Good acidity and persistent.
Ideal with white meat accompanied by strong sauces, grilled or baked lamb, stews and red grilled meat. Also with all type of cheese, preferably sheep ones and ideal with salads with nuts. Excellent with pasta with sauce.
