Tasting Note:

La Poulosa exudes headier, bluer fruit with notes of salted Scandinavian liquorice, fresh blueberries and currants, with notes of brioche and cracked clay. Creamy, plush on the palate, mouth-filling and sweetly fruited without feeling heavy, with a lovely purity and brightness to the succulent, gorgeous fruit – a real crowd pleaser. From clay dominated soils at 550m of elevation and facing east, planted in 1936. Four separate plots total 1.7 hectares across the vineyard. Good water retaining soils have proved their worth in the warmer 2017 vintage, for there is nothing overblown or overstretched about this – just ripe, creamy, classy fruit. A higher proportion of Garnacha here in the field blend, up to around 20%, whole bunch fermented, and a more limited skin contact of around 25-30 days. Aged for a year in neutral 225L barriques.
