Joan D’Anguera Montsant. Spain

£12.95
Quantity:

The Montsant DO surrounds that of Priorat, and offers a similar, richmineral style without the excessively ambitious pricing. Joan d’Anguera is a 200-year-old family estate that remains a leading light within the appellation. In 2012, the current owners, brothers Josep and Joan d’Anguera decided to adopt a new style: they converted to biodynamics, sold their destemmer, picked earlier, reduced the amount of extraction and new oak, and sought to produce clearer, lighter (though no less intense) wines inspired by traditional expressions of the DO, before ripeness and mess became all-important. Local reaction has been sceptical, but customers with a gastronomic outlook have welcomed the change. We hope it provokes other producers in the region to follow suit. All grapes are sourced from Joan d’Anguera’s various biodynamic vineyards.

TASTING NOTES

The youngest wine in the d’Anguera stable has a vibrant red colour and an equally vivid aroma of pomegranate warm and rocks. Light yet with real intensity on the palate, this is in every sense a refreshing take on the Montsant appellation.
