Review :

Finca Espolla is a parcel which stretches over an expanse of 21 hectares on the slopes and terraces of Les Alberes, an area very close to the Pyrenees mountains and lying within the Empordà denomination. The terrain's distinctive personality, with slatey, acidic soils characteristically black in colour, combined with the high density planting of 6,200 vines per hectare which reduces the vigour and number of grapes, enable the Perelada winery to produce a high quality single vineyard wine that has a very clearly defined identity.

Enjoying a typically Mediterranean climate in a location heavily buffeted by the Tramontana wind, the varieties grown on the Finca Espolla give rise to its namesake wine: Monastrell, Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah and Garnacha, with the percentage varying according to the harvest. For the 2011 vintage, the Syrah (75%) are the predominant grapes, supplemented by Cabernet Sauvignon (20%) and Garnacha (5%). All are selected and picked by hand at their optimal point of ripeness, and then vinified in vats, with a long maceration and temperature-controlled fermentation, before ageing for 18 months in new Bordeaux barrels of French Allier oak.

Presented in a Bordeaux bottle, Finca Espolla is an energetic and dynamic wine, with great freshness and the marked balsamic and mineral element etched by its place of origin. On the nose it's remarkably complex, with aromas of sweet fruit, spicy notes, caramel, coffee and a subtle lactic touch... On the palate it's powerful but rounded, with plenty of sinew and good acidity that imparts freshness, persistence and expressivity. Definitely a wine with considerable character which we recommend you always decant.
