Characteristics of L'Heravi Criança
L´Heravi Criança is a red wine from the Monstant region and is produced by the Vinyes d’en Gabriel winery.
The winery, located in Darmós (Tarragona), has been producing wines for more than 50 years ever since Joan Rofes, the founder and face of the company, started planting and producing his own wine.
L´Heravi Criança is made with an equal blend of 2 grape varieties: Samsó (50%), taken from vines that are 70 years old; and Garnacha (50%), taken from 80 year old vines. The vinyards are planted on soils of calcareous clay at an altitude of between 125-200 metres above sea level.
The harvest is carried out manually, using only products that are respectful to the environment.
L´Heravi Criança is then aged for 12-14 months French oak barrels.
