Josep Grau Viticultor

Josep Grau returned to the land where he was born in 2003 to embark on a new journey. His wines are not influenced by trends, opinion leaders’ tastes or fads. Instead, they strive to be authentic and deeply imbued with the essence: Grau is convinced that outstanding wines can be made with very little, avoiding artifice and respecting the natural language of the vineyard.

Aromas of cherries, blackberries, light spices, walnuts, bark and wet earth. Medium-to full-bodied and a little tight, with firm tannins and a velvety texture. Plush and lingering dark fruit on the palate and a soft, chocolatey finish. Drink or hold.

The delicate and perfumed Garnacha 2020 La Florens comes from two old vineyards, one 110 years old at 250 meters in altitude and another one that was 75 years old at 350 meters in altitude, both head pruned and on limestone soils. It has a vibrant palate with very good freshness and acidity and fine, slightly chalky tannins. It finishes with tasty flavors, clean and supple, almost salty. It fermented with indigenous yeasts and matured in 2,500-liter foudres for 14 months and let to settle for some time in concrete. Lovely wine. 10,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in October 2021. 2022 – 2028
