Fruit Source: Fosc is sourced from old vines of Sumoll, Ull de Llebre (Catalan for Tempranillo), and Syrah from their Plum Vineyard in Sant Llorenç d'Hortons.
Winemaking Notes: Grapes are manually harvested and placed in 10kg crates. Grapes are destemmed and macerated on the skins for five to twelve days depending on the variety. Fermentation occurs with native yeast in stainless steel. Wine is aged in neutral oak. Wine is unfined, lightly filtered and bottled by gravity with a minimal dose of SO2. The total SO2 equals 13 mg/L.
Tasting Notes: The cool sea breezes and light-handed winemaking make the Fosc brim with fresh red fruit. There is a touch of earth on the palate. This will drink nicely with a slight chill. Drink Fosc with tacos, tapas, burgers, or grilled lamb.
