Espelt Saulo Costa Brava 2005

Member Review by Evil Homer:

Black fruit on the nose. Smooth on the palate, some oak but not overbearing. Short finish but pleasant drinking wine. Good value for the price. 86

Espelt grows grapes in several properties in the area, and the vines we’re looking at are just 60 years old.

The top layer is sandy, and below that, granite. Anna plucks a plant that resembles rosemary from the ground. “This tells us the land is acidic,” she explains and hands it to me.
