FORCALLÀ DE ANTONIA

FORCALLÀ DE ANTONIA / Rafael Cambra
Red wine
100% Forcallat

Our variety Forcallat is 55 years old and planted ungrafted in sandy soil in the westernmost part of Fontanars, 700 metres above sea level. The 2014 vintage saw cool spring temperatures and moderate rainfall. As of May we had one of the most severe droughts in the last 20 years, with no rain until November, so it was a very dry year. With no irrigation, we increased our tillage work so as to maintain the scarce spring soil moisture, thus bringing the grape harvest forward 12 days with an alcohol content by volume of 14%.
In our opinion, this is a good vintage for the Forcallat, with ripe seeds and slightly lignified stems.
