  • Grower's Principals: minimal intervention, letting his vines fend themselves in all conditions.
SPAIN

This new organic Montsant (a blend of Garnacha, Carignan, Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon grown on clay soil with sub-strata of slate and granite underneath) is the child of a rather eccentric grower. He believes in minimal intervention, letting his vines fend for themselves in all conditions. The grapes are harvested separately, by hand, and macerated for anywhere between 15–20 to extract firm, sweet tannin.

The Lo Patinet is full bodied and meaty with a core of black fruit, wild herbs and spice.
