Vinya Selva de Mar Negre 2001

Winemaker's Notes:

Tasting Notes: This deep, inky grenache, syrah, carignan blend from the Costa Brava shows beautiful evolution on the nose from blueberry, milk chocolate notes opening up to more fig, exotic spice (cumin, nutmeg) and kirsch aromas. Fresh, velvety and full-bodied on the palate with firm, rounded tannins and a soft, lingering finish. Percentage Grape: 50% Grenache, 30% Syrah, 20% Old vines Carignan Soil: Metamorphic slatey soil, slightly chalky Growing Climate: 100% biodynamic - certified by CCPAE (Consell catala  produccio agricultura ecologica) Vinification Method: 100% destemmed grapes macerate slowly over a period of 30-40 days. The wine is then matured for 12 months in french oak. No fining or filtration before bottling. Sugar Rate: 0-5 g/l

This wine is simply outstanding. I've never tasted anything like it before.
