Els Jelipins, Red (2012)


Product Description

Age of Vines: Sumoll 80 (Sumoll), 35 (Garnatxa).
Soil: Sumoll alluvial w/ slate & granite traces (rich in minerals, also has quartz). Garnatxa clay/calcare. .
Varietals: Sumoll (60%) and Garnacha (40%).
Vinification Method: As little intervention as possible (wild yeast, SO2 at bottling only). The fermentation temperature is established naturally & is normally low. The extraction process is slow & careful, & they drain by tasting, respecting vital cycles. Aged more than 30 months in used oak vats (10hl foudre) from France & Garbelloto (Eslavonian oak) for the Sumoll; in demi muid from Seguin Moreau & Dominique Laurent for Garnatxa; at the moment in trial stage for use of amphora 3hl vats (10% total production).
Tasting Note: Notable for its balance. The nose is intense: kirsch aromas, clean, well-defined red fruit, accompanied by a subtle hint of balsam & flowers & a suggestion of cacao & minerals. The taste starts straight, vertical & very crystalline: medium weight, warm & juicy & clean, with a firm but silky tannic structure. A long, voluptuous & fresh finish.
Pairing: Stews, chicken and pork dishes.
