Characteristics of Vespres

New vintage of this red wine made by Josep Grau Viticultors winery in Marçà (D.O. Montsant).
Vespres owes its name to the monks of Cartuja who planted the vineyards in this area, who said vísperas (evening prayers) every day at 6.45 pm before having the last glass of red wine of the day.
Vespres comes from 35-50-year-old vines. Both the harvest and the production process are manual. It is aged for 8 months in French oak barrels. It is bottled without being filtered.
Serve at 15.0ºC
Contains sulphites
We recommend decanting before consumption
Pairing
Stews, Grilled red meats, Game animals, Roasted red meats, Mushrooms, Sheep cheese

Tasting notes Vespres

Sight Cherry red with a purple sparkle. Nose Good intensity, red fruit aromas with sweet and toasted notes. Balsamic base and somewhat herbal. Taste Potent and fleshy. Passing is unctuous, embracing and flavoursome with smoked memories and spicy notes. Persistent finish and lightly balsamic.
Sight Cherry red with a violet rib. Nose Clean and intense on the nose. Ripe red fruit together with creamy and toasted notes. Sweet, spicy and balsamic hints. A humid Mediterranean forest undergrowth hint is detected. Taste Powerful on the palate with a fleshy, long and flavourful mid palate. Very elegant. A liquorice hint. Smoked, creamy and spiced notes are detected as well as a fresh balsamic sensation. A persistent finish.
Sight The tasting repport of this wine is being translated. Meanwhile, you can check the Spanish version.
Sight Intense cherry red colour with purple reflections. Bright. Abundant tear which colours the glass. Nose High aromatic intensity, expressive. Very ripe red fruit, stewed, strong, well-combined with toasted, intense spiced aromas and pleasant balsamic touches. Taste In the mouth it is powerful with a mid-palate marked by a high acidity and very present tannins. Long and persistent finish. Aftertaste with plenty of fruit. Spiced and toasted hints at retro-olfaction. It is a consistent and robust red wine, whose rest in the bottle will be good.
Sight Beautiful ruby red colour with purple reflections. Clean and bright wine with a medium-high robe and elegant tears. Nose Intense and complex, but at the same time clean aromas. Some gentle but marked toasted aromas are released along some subtle flowers notes and some hints of liquorice and coffee on a background of very expressive and intense red and black fruit. The whole set is wrapped in an extraordinary creaminess. Once it opens out, some very fresh balsamic notes are noticed. Taste A very nice, intense, fruity and balanced wine, with a long mid palate marked by the notes of fruit, the creaminess and the nice toasted aromas. It provides soft, silky and fresh sensations. Bulky. It shows a good acidity and well integrated tannins. Its good finish has a pleasant persistence with hints of fruit.  Elegant, tasty and fresh wine with character. A round wine that seduces us from the outset.
Sight Deep red, very dense. Nose Red wine of aromatic complexity. After the nuances of red and black fruits, floral notes provided by the variety Grenache appear (violets and rose petals) together with toffee notes, typical of the variety Samsó. There is a presence of minerality with well integrated discreet notes of smoky and spicy.
Taste Montsant wine with a strong character, powerful but fresh and suggestive, and with a wide structure. Silky and sensual mid palate with a touch of sweet. The acidity is just enough to bring freshness to the wine. Long and pleasant aftertaste.
Sight Deep red, very dense. Nose The nose is complex, with notes of minerality, red and black fruit and toffees. Eucalyptus and forest notes add yet another record. 
Taste The palate is sensual, silky, but with lots of volume and character. Muscular and, at the same time, aristocratic Montsant wine. The aftertaste is long and reminiscent of the species and the unique character of the soil.
Sight Deep red, very cloudy. Nose Volume fruit very covered with red and black berries. The notes of spice and cocoa aroma gives it a very wide scale. The Toffees appear over time. Taste Elegant and flavoursome, with long aftertaste and extraordinary finesse. With a spectacular step in the mouth, pleasant, harmonious and comprehensive. Full of smoothness and structure.

Imágenes y situación D.O. Montsant

For Josep Grau, winegrower and oenologist, his obsession is the selection of the vineyard, and his final goal is 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.
