45% Syrah, 45% Grenache, 10% Mourvèdre
The cuvée Nadal is a wine produced from equal parts old vine Syrah and Grenache. The Syrah finishes alcoholic fermentation and goes through malo in 300 liter casks, while the Grenache is finished in tank. Nadal requires 1-2 years aging from its release and can be kept for more than a decade. The wine is inky and displays fresh and juicy red fruits with tremendous depth, complexity and length.
"The 2006 Nadal, which in this vintage is a blend of 45% old vine Grenache (vines planted in 1936), 45% old vine Syrah, and the rest Mourvedre, has a dark ruby/purple color, a big sweet kiss of kirsch liqueur intermixed with licorice, loamy soil notes, and hints of pepper and lavender. It is full bodied, fleshy, rich, and ideal for drinking over the next 4-5 years."
