Metamorphika Carinyena - 2017 - Joan Franquet
Costador Terroir Mediterranis
A little Carignan that’s all about pleasure and delight. A very fruity nose and palate, with blackberry, blueberry, red plum... A balanced and supple wine, with a long finish, and fine ageing potential.

100% Carignan from organic vines, harvested manually furing the first week of October 2017. Natural vinification in 600 liter amphorae, the bunches are destemmed, three months of maceration, then Joan performs a saignée and only keeps the jus de goutte (opposed to the pressed one, jus de presse), which is then aged for five months in those same amphorae. Bottled without fining nor filtration, zero added sulphur.
