Characteristics of Espelt Terres Negres

Terres Negres is a red wine from the Empordà prepared by Celler Espelt. It is a blend of Carignan (80%) and Grenache (20%).

The grapes are harvested from vineyards between 60 and 80 years old, which, in the case of the variety Carignan grow on chalky soils, and granite, in the case of Grenache.

The harvest is done manually and the grapes are transported in boxes of 15 kilos. Preselection is carried out in the field and plots are vinified one by one.

Once the cellar, alcoholic fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks at 28 °. The maximum maceration lasts 22 days.

Malolactic fermentation is then performed. Terres Negre is then aged on its lees for one or two years in French oak barrels. Finally, Terres Negres spends three months in stainless steel tanks on its lees. Before marketing, it will spend 12 months in bottle.

Celler Espelt uses the name of the family that owns the winery. They respect the nature of the vineyards and thus intervene little.

"We just let the grape speak," say the owners of the winery.

Production area 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.
