This Wine: "Give them beards and they will go crazy"....the 2019 vintage of this red and white blend. Age has developed those previously fruity flavours into something more complex and savoury. A unique chance to try an old vintage of this cuvée which is always one of our favourites from La Salada
Notes on the Winemaker: Toni Carbó is one half of the esteemed Cava house (with friend Ramon Jané), Mas Candí in Penedés. He started his own project La Salada in 2012 to focus on making wines like his Grandfather used to. They are some of most sought after as they provide an authentic and honest expression of Catalan terroir.
