Characteristics of Font de la Figuera

Another great, tasty and fresh wine from Clos Figueras, made of a blend similar to the blend of its eldest brother, the wine Clos Figueras. The grapes are manually harvested and undergo a selection in selection table when they arrive to the winery. They undergo a gentle winemaking process in 25hl vats with a daily cap punching. After two-week maceration, the wine is aged in 500l second year French oak barrels. Finally, it undergoes a light filtration before bottling. It can be drunk now or aged for 10 years approximately.
Serve at 15.0ºC
Contains sulphites
We recommend decanting before consumption
Pairing
Roasted lamb, Iberian ham, Wild pig, Red meat with sauce, Duck, Roasts, Beef

Tasting notes Font de la Figuera

The Priorat region was marked by heavy drought and heat. Following an autumn and winter with normal temperatures and rainfall, spring began with an abnormal drought and high temperatures. Flowering was successful, occurring before the expected date, but the rains didn’t come. During the summer the high temperatures continued, and the lack of rainfall resulted in the earliest harvest in history. In general, the wines of this vintage are noted for their concentration, being less pronounced in wines produced with local varieties such as Grenache or Cariñena. Perfect for enjoying young, and with a medium aging capacity.
We present the new 2016 vintage, characterised by the wettest winterin the last five years. Not only did it rain in winter, but there was also wet weather up until summer arrived, especially inMarch and April. In summer everything changed, and it was one of the driest inhistory, with only 28 litres being recorded between July and October.If we compare the temperatures in 2012 and 2016, the 2016 crophad to endure a much colder winter than in 2012, which turned outto be positive, since the frost cleared the fields ofvine parasites. During the spring, lower temperaturesthan in 2012 were also recorded.Due to all these climatic conditions there was a delay insprouting, which began on March 28th, and which led to a delayin flowering of between three and four weeks.Once the summer arrived, the Priorat got all the luck, sincethe rains disappeared, while in the rest of Europethey were incessant. It was something that nobody expected considering thewinter we’d had. Taking into account the delay insprouting, the harvest started around mid-October on some ofthe estates.Obtaining fresh wines with an extraordinary acidity is dueto this long duration of the grape in the strain that has so characterisedthis vintage.
The vintage began in autumn in the best possible way, with good rainfalls that would fill the water reserves for optimal growth development. Winter was characterised by low temperatures and even snow covered some areas of Priorat. March started wet and cold, which delayed the budding of the vines. In mid-May, flowering was encouraged and was followed by a somewhat unstable June with several rainfalls.
A year with a very good balance. This vintage was characterised by the absence of water stress for the plants. Winter and spring were favourable in terms of rainfall and temperatures were slightly higher than usual. At the time of budding, there was no rain, so the vines developed in a suitable manner. The flowering took place in a clean way and the Grenache vines settled in an excellent way. Summer was characterised by cool and dry days, but also humid, which led to good photosynthesis and growth of the plants. During the end of the summer, before the harvest, there was still some humidity, which preserved the freshness of the soil and, consequently, achieving a gradual ripening of the grapes, perfect to retain the aromas and the good acidity. The negative factor was the rain during the harvest days. In short, the vintage has been somewhat atypical for Priorat, with wines that are less voluminous than in a normal year in the area, but with a good acidity that is reflected in the wines and that will keep them optimal for many years.
A year that started with some problems with the flowering but ended up being very good. Winter was colder and rainier than usual. Spring continued with days of low temperatures and a lot of water that delayed flowering and the consequent setting problems until the end of March, affected production. After a complicated year, when the summer began, the rains stopped and the temperatures rose, providing excellent ripening due to optimal rainfall during the year. The year has therefore been one of the best in recent years. Fluidity, acidity and concentration augur for a long life of the wines of this vintage.
Sight Intense ruby â??â??red with attractive blue-purple reflections. Clean and bright wine with good tears. Nose The smoky notes and the intense and expressive notes of fruit are mixed with the mineral arômas in a perfect harmony from the beginning. Some time later, the herbal and spicy notes are also released along with a balsamic and floral touch. Very seductive and balanced aromas. Taste Wide attack and a very tasty, juicy and silky mid palate. Its has a very high fruit expression nuanced by the smoky, floral and mineral aromas. It is a fresh wine, with ripe well-integrated tannins. Well bodied wine with a great, long and persistent finish that leaves a nice spicy and toasted aftertaste. Very tasty! An elegant and seductive wine.
