The first thing that hits you on the nose is the purity of the fruit. Like they've squeezed a blackcurrant into it, extracting the very essence of the fruit. Dancing over the top are violets in raspberry shoes. From that pure and pretty nose, that palate plunges you into spicy, smokey, bramble fruit layers of deliciousness with a core of minerality that would put even the most flinty Chablis to shame. This is a thing of beauty and joy and will give you shivers of delight for at least the next five to eight years.


Tasting Notes

One of a small group of winemakers of stars who are being celebrated for discovering the more ethereal side of their local grapes and terroir. Joan d'Anguera is a winery run by two brothers, Josep and Joan d'Anguera, who have navigated uncharted terrain since 2012 when they decided to radically change the style of their wines from powerful, thick and dark, which was an obsession of producers from the 1990s, to showcase the elegance, charm and drinkability in their wines. A phenomenally beautiful and pioneering biodynamic and organic vineyard that is now recognised world wide as one of Spain's leading producers.
