Cabernet Sauvignon 2019
Aged red wine
Aged 12 months in oak barrels, with subsequent bottle ageing
Dark cherry colour with slight ruby tones, shows an aroma of great intensity, with expression of jams and fruits of the forest, and pleasant roasted notes from the oak ageing. Silky and elegant, with a very long finish, as befits a wine of great lineage.
Can Fontanals, Les Timbes. A relatively small vineyard planted in 1999 with exceptional characteristics for growing Cabernet Sauvignon. The soils are draining, not very fertile, with a clay loam texture, rough and dry soils that welcome the vines willing to suffer. The result is grapes that produce a wine with body, character, structure and concentration.
Unlike the previous year, this one was very peaceful. It rained when expected, and the weather was mild in general, giving us a year of minimal intervention in the vineyard. Moderate rainfall (mostly in autumn and spring), mild temperatures and not such a hot summer significantly delayed ripening and therefore the start of the harvest. We began 8-10 days later than usual, which favoured ripening. With a very balanced alcohol content, acidity and pH, this was one of the best harvests in recent years. Moderate production and excellent quality.
