Castel Pujol Folklore Tinto
Vineyards planted at 250 meters above sea level in soils of aeolian origin, red sand, with great depth and water retention capacity. Handpicked into 15kg boxes. Made with 80% Tannat co-pigmentation with 20% of Petit Manseng's first press skins. Tannat bunches are destemmed over the tanks and combined with 20% skins from 1st. Press of Petit Manseng grapes. Fermented with selected native yeast in stainless steel tanks with pumping over twice a day for 6 days. It finished the 2nd fermentation in 2nd wine barrels where it completed malolactic fermentation. Then it's kept for just a few months for natural clarification. Then bottled with nominal So2. “Bright nose with black sour cherries, herbs and stones, as well as some grapes and a hint of lemon zest. Perfumed and racy with a very supple, round palate. Really silky, smooth and characterful with generous, juicy fruit. Vegan. Sustainable. 80% tannat and 20% petit manseng. Vegan. Unfiltered. Fun. Drink now.” - James Suckling.
