2012 Selenita Nit
70% Garnatxa del Pais & 30% Samsó (Cariñena)
A beautiful 74 year old vineyard that is oriented north - less sun and the naturally low pH of the pinyolenc soil keep the wine fresh.
Fermentation in concrete followed by 15 months in 50% new French oak and a further 2 years ageing in bottle.
This is a powerhouse Montsant, resembling the style of its more famous neighbor Priorat. Chock full of red fruits with an intriguing Asian spice and then a floral component with plenty of blueberry and even some quince. A wine that develops and changes with each sip - powerful, precise and lengthy, showcasing the complexity of dry-grown, organic Garnacha.
