Empordà is a small area with a variety of soils found in few other locations: slate slopes, sandy plains, fluvial sediment, clay-silt, gravel. This diversity of soils allows wine producers to harvest grapes with an enormous range of nuances and to produce complex wines full of character. Like Castillo Perelada 3 Fincas Crianza and Castillo Perelada 5 Fincas Reserva. To make this wine, Castillo Perelada uses grapes from 3 of its Empordà vineyards, each of them with their own geological conditions: Merlot from Pont de Molins, Garnatxa and Samsó from La Garriga and Cabernet Sauvignon from Espolla . The soil heterogeneity in this region is unique and allows to make wines with an extremely wide range of nuances. Medium intensity cherry red colour. There’s a predominance of red and black fruits, nicely blended with the ageing notes. In the mouth it is round, fresh, with very fine and ripe tannins. This is a nice, long and enveloping wine.
