Oriol Artigas El Rall 2021
£18.30 (Inc. VAT & Duties bot. 75 cl.) / United Kingdom
Oriol Artigas El Rall is a wine that for many is the substitute for the extinct Raspa, and the fact is that it is made from Oriol's own red grape varieties, such as Merlot, Syrah, Grenache, Sumoll and Mataró, grapes that are grown in soils that are very close to the sea.
Oriol Artigas is the name of the man in charge of this winery. He was born in the village of Vilassar de Dalt, where his family has lived for more than thirteen generations.
In his dedication to winemaking, his premise was to cultivate the vineyards in a natural way and with as little intervention as possible, as his aim is to harvest high quality grapes for the production of full-bodied wines.
This results in the bottling of one of the winery's most distinctive beverages, described as powerful, dry and with a balanced touch of acidity.
To make El Rall, the grapes are harvested and destemmed in the traditional way, without the use of machinery or techniques that could modify the chemistry of the fruit. Then, it undergoes a spontaneous alcoholic fermentation process, using indigenous yeasts.
It is then aged for 7 months in stainless steel and oak barrels. Finally, it is bottled for distribution.
Oriol Artigas El Rall is a wine described by experts as powerful, due to its interesting and impregnating flavour. However, it tends to be light on the palate, with dry touches and prolonged acidity.
A wine with body and balance
Oriol Artigas El Rall is a wine that will make a difference in any comparison, and its texture and flavour make it an unforgettable experience. Moreover, it is perfect for pairing with dishes that include white meats, blue fish and desserts that include cocoa.
It is definitely a wine that takes you back to the tradition of Vilassar de Dalt, where the taste is unique and impressive.
