This outstanding new wine comes from a single, very steep vineyard planted with over 100 year old Grenache vines. The vineyard is located at La Figuera, on the northern edge of the Montsant D.O., and looks onto the famous Montsant mountain as well as having spectacular views of the Ebro valley and even the distant Pyrenees mountains 125 miles away. Hence the name!
The vines have been carefully tended by René Barbier’s Clos Mogador team and the wine vinified by René in one special oak vat. The wine is stunning, with glorious ripe Grenache fruit and wonderful soft spicy flavours…and of course the enormous depth and richness provided by the age of the vines. The project is jointly owned by Réné and Isabelle Barbier, Fernando and Marta Zamora (Oenologists and teachers at University of Tarragona), and Charlotte and Christopher Cannan.
With only 5000 bottles being made Espectacle is designed to be distributed through the prestige restaurant trade in Spain, and to high profile retail and restaurant accounts worldwide. There is no doubt that the age of the vines and the spectacular location of the vineyards will generate lots of interest, and the quality will establish Espectacle as one of Spain’s greatest red wines..a magnificent example of how special pure Grenache from 100 year old vines can be.
