Estones Grenache Carignan Montsant

00150412

Estones is a Catalonian language term used to refer to good moments. Very proper name. The characteristic local slate soil has transmuted into this deep and elegantly mineral red treasure. In this case it is the terroir who’s got the leading voice.

Having enjoyed the PX Unic I was keen to try one of the Estones reds and wasn't disappointed by this. It's a full bodied smooth red and very drinkable
