CRUOR 2014

Cruor is one of our classic wines. Garnatxa, Samsó and Cabernet Sauvignon are chosen from the different parts of La Fredat. This property’s varied terrain produces Garnatxa which ripens in the sun, morning and afternoon, providing clusters both from cool and hot zones. Such a varied selection brings with it elegance and complexity.

Medium to long maceration and 14–16 months ageing in French oak casks, some of which are new, combine to create the personality of this wine.

At La Fredat, in the Obac de la Caseta and Obac de la Garnatxa areas, the most perfect bunches of Garnatxa are selected.  The grapes ripen evenly as the sun is able to penetrate the loosely formed clusters.

In the cellar the wine is carefully and gently worked to bring out its structure and elegance.  12 months’ ageing in French oak casks rounds off the crafting of this wine that fully expresses the terroir of La Fredat.
