Cellers Ronadelles Cap de Ruc Crianza 2014

Spain / Catalonia

Andy's Tasting Notes

Modern, exciting Spanish wine at its best. Explosive blackcurrant, black cherry and damson fruit with a mineral streak to offset the richness. Heady and boldly flavoured but elegant and beautifully balanced too. Skilful use of oak – 12 months ageing in French oak.

60% Garnacha, 40% Cariñena

Price per bottle £11.50

Producer Info

Montsant, just next-door to Priorato, is one of the new, exciting viticultural areas of Spain; except of course it’s not new at all – quite ancient, actually – but certainly revitalized. It is now producing some wines of astonishing depth of fruit and freshness – the products of a high proportion of old vines grown at high altitude. Cellers Ronadelles is typical of the combination of entrepreneurial energy and ancient vineyards which is so characteristic of the area at the moment. Jaume Giral, the owner, is determined to demonstrate the potential of his region and practices mostly organic viticulture with low yields – in fact some of the vines are so old they aren’t capable of anything but low yields.
