Absis 2017

An organic red wine made to last over time

Absis is a complex wine, with strong tannins, high alcohol content and great acidity. The quality required for it to improve with time and to develop another dimension due to its tertiary aromas which the barrel has given it.

Its ageing capacity lies in the terroir in which its grapes grow. The La Torreta estate, in the Garraf massif, is home to soils full of marine fossils from when the sea occupied the Penedès.

Absis takes its name from the stones that make up the apse of Romanesque churches, which, like it, endure over time, impassive and beautiful.

A wine that is only made in exceptional vintages.

Tasting Note

Sight

Purple colour with cherry rim, high intensity black colour.

Nose

Great concentration and complexity in aroma, with candied notes of red fruits, sultanas, plums, blackberries… perfectly blended with the wood and the presence of balsamic notes.

Mouth

In the mouth it shows great power and concentration, being full and ample.

"Sweet, penetrating red and dark berry flavours exhibit liqueur-like depth, but juicy acidity keeps the wine lively. The floral quality returns on the finish, which features lingering notes of star anise and clove. "Wears its 100% new oak gracefully thanks to the deep, sweet fruit.
