Real reviews from customers who have purchased this product

Espectacle is a wonderful red wine produced in the Montsant by the winery Espectacle del Montsant. The winery is unconventional, a project that was formed by a team of world leading wine experts, with the aim to produce one exceptional wine. A wine that is able to convey the sensations of a centenary vineyard. A true 'espectáculo' (spectacle).

The team is made up of:
René barbier, prestigious producer in the D.O Penedés, responsible for great wines such as: Clos Mogador. Isabel Meyer, René's wife, who is in charge of the image, public relations and advertising. Christopher Cannan, British, but with a great experience in producing wine from this region: Clos Figueres. Fernando Zamora, who works as consultant to various wineries in the Priorat. And finally, Marta Conde, graduated in biology with a wide technical knowledge in the Priorat.

Espectacle is a monovarietal of the grape Garnacha Tinta, with the grapes originating from one single estate. This estate 'Espectacle', is a small 2 hectare field with steep slopes and centenary vines.

All the work in the vineyard is performed by hand. The harvest, the grapes are picked from the same vineyard at the optimum moment. The grapes are then carried to the winery in small containers and are cooled down for 24 hours at 4ºC.

After this time, the grapes are destemmed and the best grapes are selected for the next stage.

The fermentation of this wine takes place in very fine French oak vats with the yeast originating from the same vineyard.

There is a series of pump overs to obtain the desired levels of colour and tannin extraction.

Once the fermentation is finished, the wine is macerated for 4-5 weeks before being aged for a period of 14-16 months in the same vats.

Espectacle, as name suggests in Spanish is truly spectacular. 100 year Garnacha vines, a great selection of grapes and a careful winemaking process that attempts to extract the very best from this wonderful terroir. A great wine on an international scale.

Espectacle Vins in Montsant is a project that was born from the union of a group of wine experts with a common denominator: making a wine, unique in the world, that transmits the characteristics of the century-old Grenache variety from the area of Montsant . Its creators thought about this project for many years, but it was not until 2004 that they launched the first harvest of their wine Espectacle on the market. Its success was resounding, immediate and continued, as evidenced by the 99 Parker points achieved by Espectacle 2012.
Montsant is situated in the province of Tarragona, surrounding the DOQ Priorat. Although a young Denominación de Origen, Monstant is located in a land with a large history in winemaking. The wines, mostly reds, are typically made with Grenache and Carignan grapes and are authentic, wild and artisanal. Wines produced in this region are usually extremely good value given the high quality.
