Edetària

Via Terra Rouge

:: Spain

http://en.edetaria.com

Estate::

Edetària is the winery of reference in Terra Alta, producing authentic wines with indigenous varieties of old vines in a unique terroir with a strong personality. Terra Alta region is the biggest producer of Garnacha in the world.

This region was inhabited by an Iberian tribe called Edetanas.  During the Roman Empire, Via Edetana Road was built from the Mediterranean coast, travelling inland Spain and crossing where the Lliberia family vineyards are located.  Hence the name of Edetaria.
The Edetana people had the oldest winemaking site in Spain, just a few kilometres from the winery.

Today, Edetaria’s wines are considered by wine critics as ones of the best mediterranean wines of Catalonia and Spain. Minerality, complexity, balance and elegance are the essence of these wines, the fruit of painstaking work, adapting each vine to the ground where it grows.

The vineyards are located at 450 – 550 meters and the estate is owned by Joan Angel Lliberia and his family.

In conversion CPPAE since 2016.

Grape varieties::

100% grenache

Vinification::

This Wine is made from red Grenache from our vineyards located in la Plana de Gandesa, in well drained soil terraces with low yields. Once in the cellar, we combine two different wine making processes. A first one, with a cold maceration of grapes, to obtain all of Grenache fruitiness; and a second one more traditional, with riper grapes to achieve a more complex structure to the whole.

ageing::

Aged in 300 litre French oak barrels for 6 months.

appearance::

Intense red, with violet hues.

taste::

Tastes friendly with soft tannins, with outstanding red fruit and a spicy finish.
