Characteristics of La Petite Agnès

La Petite Agnès is a coupage red wine at 50% Grenache and Cariñena produced by Bodegas y Viñedos Cal Grau in the D.O.Q. Priorat.

Bodegas y Viñedos Cal Grau is part of Compañía de Viñedos Iberian. This, in turn, was founded by the Osborne family, whose relationship with wine has its beginnings in the eighteenth century with the wines of Jerez.

The grapes for producing La Petite Agnès come from the Finca la Solana estate, in El Molar. It is a 22 hectare estate, terraced and with "licorella" soils, the name by which the slate soils are known in the area. These soils are poor in organic matter and have good drainage - ideal conditions for growing grapes.

La Petite Agnès is fermented in 8,500 litre stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature of 25 ºC. Full maceration with the skins lasts some 7 days. By practicing these techniques a fresh wine is obtained, with little extraction and with fruity aromas. Lastly it is aged for 4 months in first and second year French oak barrels.

La Petite Agnès is a red wine with the coupage of Grenache and Cariñena, typical of the Priorat. It is noted for being a fresh and fruity wine with touches of its barrel ageing. A wine suitable for accompanying on a wide range of occasions.

Tasting notes La Petite Agnès

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.
La Petite Agnès 2015 has mineral and smoky aromas, together with notes of red fruit with ripe berries and licorice. On the palate it is fresh, with a good acidity and polished tannins.

Designation of Origin D.O.Q. Priorat

Priorat is craftsmanship and tradition, old and robust vines that are grown and born deep inside the province of Tarragona. They are grown on slopes that are sleety with low fertility and difficult to grow in. In Priorat they produce great red wines of an excellent quality, a maroon colour, robust, dense and rich flavour, intense aromas and sometimes there are reflections present of minerals from the soils.
