Pólvora is a Trepat variety red wine that the Vins de la Memòria winery produces in the D.O. Conca de Barberà.
Vins de la Memòria is a dream come true for Xavi Nolla, who having seen the life his grandfather lived, decided to make wine as a tribute to all those men and women who suffered in the Spanish civil war. Some of these wines start life in the same fields as the Ebro battle. The name Pólvora is inspired by the constant bombing that the area suffered, leaving the vineyards with traces of iron and gunpowder.
Pólvora comes from a 1.5 hectare vineyard located 410 metres above sea level. The crop is cultivated organically with a limited yield of 6,000 kg per hectare. The harvest is carried out manually at the optimum moment of ripeness.
When the Pólvora grape reaches the winery, it is destemmed, pressed and ferments spontaneously with native yeasts. It then ages for 3 months in 650 litre chestnut foudres. When it is ready, it is bottled without stabilising or filtering, so some sediment may appear over time.
Pólvora is a red wine made with a native variety known for its character and lightness. Two characteristics that are perfectly revealed in this deep red wine.
