D.O. Montsant (Catalonia)
Les Pujoles is a red wine from the D.O Montsant produced by the Orto Vins winery. This wine is a single variety wine, made using only Tempranillo grapes.
Situated in an area of Les Sorts, the grapes used for Les Pujoles come from an estate that gives the wine its name: Bancal de Les Pujoles, which is over 120 years old. The vineyard spans little more than half a hectare and is home to mainly calcareous soils. The vineyard grows on gentle slopes with a south-west facing orientation, planted in 1989 and is situated at 105 meters. Agriculture is carried out using organic methods and the vines are planted on low bush vines, following the traditional methodology.
After having undergone the various phases of the winemaking process, Les Pujoles finally ages for 12 months in 3rd year French oak barrels.
Orto Vins is a young winery, founded in 2008, and is situated in the town of El Masroig. Founded and lead by four partners, the aim of the project is the produce wines that express the character of the terroir using grape varieties native to the area. Les Pujoles is one of the four single variety wines produced by the winery.
