Hi Folks, Almost 2 years ago we proudly brought to you our First Catalan offering the 2017 Edetaria Via Terra Garnacha Blanca from Terra Alta named one of the top 100 wines of 2018 from Wine Spectator Magazine, that is still available, however if you were more tempted by one of the best value Catalan Reds on the market than I encourage you to keep reading! The 2018 Marco Abella Olbieta Negre Tinto is made from that classic Catalan blend of Garnacha, Carignan and Syrah from vines situated at high altitude and not far from the Mediterranean coast. There is a lovely aroma of violets, blackberries, raspberries, blueberries, rosemary & thyme along with nice touches of savouriness & spice notes with a silky texture and refreshing acidity. Fresh and youthful this is a great value Catalan Red from a top Priorat winemaker and at Australia's Best Price! I will leave you with encouraging words of wisdom from the Capital Gazette (USA) who have provided an excellent summary below as to what make's this new release highly sought after.
''Marco Abella wines are more fresh and elegant than other Catalan wines. Expect pure, concentrated fruit flavors. Production is small, thus making the wines harder to find.'' Tom Marquardt & Patrick Darr, Capital Gazette, (USA)
Note: We have a small allocation at the moment, with another shipment arriving in the next 6 weeks.
