Ca N'Estruc, 'L'Equilibrista' Red Blend 2015
Syrah 45%, Grenache 35%, Samso 20%
Siscu Marti Badia
Focused and bright, red cherry and blackberry fruit aromas with touches of coffee and mocha. The palate is complex with wild cherry and bramble fruit characters, savoury notes, balancing acidity and spicy warmth. Intense, structured and generous with a long finish.
The L'Equilibrista wines are produced from a selection of the best parcels from this old Catalan estate. A blend of Syrah, Garnacha and Carinena (called Samso locally). The individual parcels are fermented separately, then blended. The wine spends 14 months in new French oak barrels.
The Ca N'Estruc estate dates back to 1548. Here on the slopes of the holy mountain of Montserrat in Esparreguera - half an hour away from Barcelona - Francisco Marti cultivates 22 hectares planted at 165m on alluvial soil. The estate has a unique microclimate with the vineyards planted to protect vines from the cold north winds whilst optimising sunshine to ensure full ripening. They experience cool summers, mild winters and an average annual temperature of 14C.
