Characteristics of Espelt Quinze Roures

Espelt Quinze Roures is a white wine from the Empordà, prepared by the Espelt bodega. This winery is located in Vilajuïga (Girona).

Espelt Quinze Roures is made from Grenache gris (50%), the local variety of the area, and Grenache (50%). The grapes come from very old vines planted between 1906 and 1973 on shallow soils and slopes, in the area of Rabós.

To prepare Espelt Quinze Roures, each variety undergoes the process separately. The Grenache gris, meanwhile, is cold pressed with very low yield in order to prevent a pink wine being produced. Both varieties perform a separate fermentation in French oak barrels of 500l.

After this, the blend is made and Espelt Quinze Roures is aged for five months in barrel. Finally, before bottling, it is allowed to stand on its lees in the same barrels.

Tasting notes Espelt Quinze Roures

Sight Very clear and bright reddish yellow. Nose Medium to high intensity with aromas of white fruit and toast and citrus notes. Herbaceous and floral background. Taste Good entry, nice and cool. Tasty and somewhat dry step, with presence of white fruit and toasted notes. Good acidity. Medium-long finish.
Sight Light yellow colour with green reflections. Glycerine tear. Nose Great aromatic intensity. The soft toasted aroma provided during its short time in oak gives way to very diverse fruit notes (tropical fruit, pear, melon) that are eventually mixed with spices, cocoa and a touch of vanilla. Its subtle background of honey and nuts rounds this elegant and complex aromatic set. Taste Creamy and mouth filling attack which evidences the maturity of this white wine. Its notes of fruit and its balanced acidity provide it with freshness. Good, highly persistent finish with silky aromas of cocoa, vanilla, honey and nuts.
Sight Pale yellow colour with thin greenish edges. Bright and clean wine with slightly dense tears. Nose Intense, elegant and slightly complicated aromas. Some soft toasted aromas give way to a wide variety of juicy fruits (fresh tropical and white fruit and citrus) and to some creamy sweet spices mixed with a surprising touch of cocoa. Its mellow aromas and the notes of honeyed nuts form a very nice background. Taste A wine with a good attack. From the first moment, the mouth is coated with creaminess and expressive notes of ripe fruit wrapped in soft aromas of wood and nuts. The aromas of sweet spices are also noticed. Good, unctuous and tasty mid palate with a marked acidity that provides it with a very balanced freshness. Good finish with very persistent hints of nougat, honey and nuts.
Sight Intense yellow with little green hues. Nose Potency and persistence in the nose. Taste Highlights a soft first touch of wood that does not mask the wine's personality. The post-taste has notes of toasted nuts. A tip of acidity gives a final persistent.

Designation of Origin D.O. Empordà

Winery Espelt

The landscape of the region of Empordà, located in the northeast of Catalonia, is full of contrasts, due to the natural limits of the Pyrenees in the north and the Mediterranean Sea and magnificent Costa Brava in the east. Thanks to these, the Empordà is a unique place, a special territory between the sea and the mountains, marked by the presence of the north wind known as Tramontana.
