Celler de Capcanes Mas Collet Garnacha
Celler de Capcanes Mas Collet Garnacha has a medium deep red colour with flecks of violet and ripe cherry flavours and blueberries on the nose. Smooth well integrated oaky, toasty aromas. Medium bodied, fruit driven, fine ripe sweetness with good acidity which is perfectly balanced with the round ripe tannins culminating in a long ripe fruit driven finish.
Temperature controlled fermentation (26-29º). All varieties were vinified separately in stainless steel tanks. Maceratio for 8-16 days. Aging for 9 months in old oak.
Working with Garnacha predominantly but with vineyards of Samso (Carinyena/ Cariñena), Tempranillo, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Pinot Noir, Macabeo and Garnacha Blanca scattered over sites on the hills that rise up around the village giving altitudes ranging from around 250 to 550 metres. They are pressing their growers to cultivate organically.
Nestled in the rugged hills of the Catalan countryside, in the tiny village bearing its name, is the well-respected Celler de Capçanes.
It was this wild Montsant landscape which first captivated Jürgen Wagner back in the early 90s, but the huge potential he recognised in this unique village co-operative that determined what followed. Pouring all his efforts into working with the growers to nurture the best from their vineyards and the most honest expressions of their terroir, Celler de Capçanes has established itself as one of the most engaging wineries in the area.
A combination of diverse vineyards plots and old vine Garnacha is captured and eloquently expressed in all their wines. Winemaker, Anna Rovira together with Jürgen, conjure up complex and characterful wines that show how with a shared vision, focus on quality and hard work, great wines and an enviable reputation is not the preclusion of single estates.
