Honor Negre 2018
A great youg wine from the Denomination of Origen Penedes located in Catalonia, just few kilometers from Barcelona.
This wine is made using a blend of 40% Merlot, 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, two varieties grown in this area since 1970. The grapes are peeled and a grape juice is made from each variety. Each variety is fermented in stainless steel tanks with their own skins for 20 days at a temperature between 18°-20°. When the fermentation is completed, the blending is made following the oenologist criteria until the desired taste is obtained.
The result is a Medium Purple wine with nice hints of black fruit and woodland strawberries in your nose and an excellent balance of acidity and tannins with a persistent finish in your mouth. A good candidate to try the quality of the wines made in this area.
