Marta de Baltà 2017
Marta de Baltà, the organic syrah wine dedicated to love
Microvinification of syrah from old vineyards. With this wine, Marta de Baltà, we want to express the complexity and strength of the feminine character. A monographic where the syrah allows the palate to fill the velvet of an infinity of nuances, which could be contradictory but are integrated to form a symphony of flavours and aromas.
Dedicated to Marta Casas, one of the winery’s oenologists and wife of the third generation of the family. This wine was born at the same time as the love between Marta and Josep Cusiné. A wine that shows us the importance of love and passion as the driving force to achieve our dreams.
A wine that is only made in the best vintages.
Intense robe, violet tonality.
Impressive nose in intensity and complexity, with notes of plums and blackberries, black fruit preserves combined with toast and vanilla from the ageing process.
The entry is silky and velvety, with great concentration and body. The balance between fruit and oak is initially dazzling, but on closer tasting there are also lactic and creamy retronasal notes. Pleasant aftertaste and long persistence.
"Smooth and broad on the strikingly persistent finish, with supple tannins shaping and firming sweet blueberry and cassis flavours."
