D.O. Montsant (Catalonia)
Vins Nus Siuralta Morat is a natural red wine produced by the winery Vins Nus, in Cornudella de Montsant, D.O. Motsant.
Vins Nus is the new project of Alfredo Arribas (Portal del Priorat). As a result of his search for high-altitude vines to produce very special wines, Alfredo began his new project in 2008.
The vineyards to make Vins Nus are located in high areas of Montsant and cultivated biodynamically. These magnificent vineyards, harvested at their optimal ripening point, yield grapes with a good acidity and freshness. This allows Alfredo to make his wines in a non-interventionist way, without adding SO2 or any other chemical, resulting in pure, traditional wines, very close to their origins. Wines of altitude, and with a good ageing capacity.
Vins Nus Siuralta Morat is a red wine made with Syrah (90%) and Viognier (10%) from vineyards located at 780 metres, planted on red clay soils with very low yields.
The harvest is manual and placed in 16-kg boxes and the two varieties are harvested at the same time. Once in the winery, the grapes co-ferment in stainless steel deposits with native yeasts. After the fermentation, they are aged for 10 months in large amphorae.
Vins Nus Siuralta Morat is a juicy, intense and structured wine. On the nose, the aromas of black fruit and notes of spices stand out. In the mouth, it is voluminous in its entrance, with quite an ample mid-palate and a fresh finish, where the fruit stands out once again.
