Dosterras Naixement 2014
$299.00 inc. GST
A very rare release, created to express the very best of the Dosterras site. Each bottle comes packaged in an individual, textured box decorated with the full artwork from the label – created by Brazilian illustrator Eduardo Recife to reflect what happened during the harvest, at the winery, and in the lives of those who work there, during the year.
Tasting Note: 80% Grenache, 20% Carignan. Ruby colour. Highly complex and engaging nose, with forest floor and white musk, ink, and graphite aromas all combining with the more complex fruits, spices, and liquorice. Fresh acidity on the palate denotes the elegance of this wine, a multifaceted and intense slew of meaty and gamey characters flooding the mouth. These different sensations resolve into a silky, satisfying finish. Long and moreish. Ageing potential of 20+ years.
Winemaking Notes: From the vineyards of Pedrenyeres (45 year old Grenache in clay soils) and Verinxell (70 year old Carignan on slate soils). Alcoholic fermentation in stainless steel tanks with maceration for 25 days, daily piggeage. Aged for 14 months in 500 litre French oak barrels. Malolactic fermentation took place during spring in the same oak barrels.
Region: D.O. Montsant, Spain
