Characteristics of Finca Aiguasals
Wine from Celler Dosterras, a small winery from Monstant that, with the greatest care, produces high quality wines, result of the passion that Josep Grau feels for the land and the grapes. This winery stands out for its search of the greatest expression of the grapes and their production with the lowest intervention. With this Finca Aiguasals, this winery has achieved one of the highest and purest expressions of the Samsó grapes (Carignan) that we can find in the market.
It is produced with Samsó grapes froma single estate, Finca Aiguasals. This estate is located at 320 metres altitude in terraces of Licorella, and planted with old vines of more than 83 years old (some of them are even over 100 years old) surrounded by olive and almond trees and oriented to the North, which favours a slow and homogeneous ripening.
A very respectful vine-growing is conducted. Yields amount to 0.5kg per vine only. The work and the harvest are conducted manually. Grapes were selected in small 10kg boxes at the end of October. After a natural fermentation with indigenous yeast in wooden vats, a spontaneous fermentation and an ageing took place in 300l French oak barrels where the wine was left to stand for 24 months.
This wine is neither clarified nor filtered and therefore decanting the wine at least one hour before serving it turns to be essential.
It has a great ageing potential. Although the wine is now in an extraordinary moment, it will considerably improve with the years.
It is one of the most elegant wines that we can find currently in the market. A wine that will fill us with feelings and emotions that we will hardly forget.
Serve at 16ºC

SightIntense and very bright extraordinary maroon colour, with violet hints. Elegant slow-falling tears.NoseVery seductive nose! It has a strong minerality that reminds us of the slopes of slate soils. Its intense notes of ripe fruit and the refreshing balsamic are released along with creamy aromas provided by the wood (wide spicy notes and toffee) that appear seductively and provide the bouquet with balance and harmony.TasteA great wine! It has a powerful attack and, from the first plunge, it fills the mouth with juicy and tasty fruit, full of creamy nuances, reaching at same point the sweetness of jam. Its extraordinary mineral notes are integrated and form one of the tastiest and most elegant sets that can be found. The smoothness of its mid palate provides it with an elegance that embraces everything. Its tannins are ripe and well integrated and it shows and excellent acidity and an excellent body. Its very long and very persistent finish leaves extraordinary sensations of silky and mellow fruit.
Remarkable, stunning, elegant and seductive wine. A luxury of a wine to be enjoyed fully. An unforgettable moment!

The history of the winery Dosterras is part of the history of Josep Grau, winegrower and oenologist. The selection of the vineyard has always been his obsession, and his final goal has been to make the best wines, authentic and exciting. He works with a puzzle of small vineyards in the municipalities of Marçà, Capçanes and Falset, each with its particular mineral richness, with clay, calcareous, granite and slate soils that provide, together with an extreme and unpredictable climate, genuine wines, superb, rich, and with the identity of fruit and terroir.
