Grapes: Garnacha (Grenache) and Cabernet Sauvignon + a bit of white Cartoixà

Making of: the grapes are destemmed and macerated with gentle pumpovers, for 6 days at a temperature of 20-22ºC, in stainless steel tanks. Then they are pressed, and the low-pressure part of the juice is used to make this wine (in order to get red wine with a light body and soft tannins). The wine rests in stainless steel, is then blended with some white Cartoixà wine and bottled without fining or filtration. No sulfur added.

Personality: full of red and black fruits – cherries, blackberries, blueberries… Fresh, voluminous, very round, soft and with lovely chewy texture. Don’t hesitate to chill the wine and let it breathe a bit after opening, and then enjoy with cold cuts, light vegetable and meaty dishes or just like that…

The Celler 9+ vineyards are located only a few kilometers from the Mediterranean coast and benefit from its warm and mild climate – there’s enough rainfall, and the constant breeze called Marinada cools off and dries the grapes, helping them to stay healthy and ripen evenly.

The farm focuses on indigenous grapes and maximum sustainability. As Celler 9+’s winemaker asserts, “Our philosophy is that the future will be environmentally friendly and sustainable … or there won’t be one at all.

Besides grapes, Moisès’ farm also cultivates other traditional Mediterranean crops like olives, carob and grain.

The name Celler 9+ refers to Nou de Gaià, the village where the winery is located – Nou in Catalan means New and also the number nine. And the plus sign symbolizes positivity and the will to grow.
