About The Wine

This is an absolutely cracking Grenache-dominant blend from Sara i Rene for when you're looking for a fun, frisky red.

The fruit for this wine is all organically grown in granite filled soils, which gives a lovely mineral 'crunch' and clarity to the final wine. It's rich and juicy, with a nice touch of spice making an appearance too - warming and enveloping, it's a wholesome drop.

High in drinkability, it's an absolutely stellar wine from these lo-fi producers. Fresh and energetic - as good as it gets.

About Sara I Rene

Next generation winemakers with deep historical roots, that’s just the beginning when talking about the wines of Sara I Rene...

This a project formed by two famous Priorat names- René Barbier of Clos Mogador (son of the founder) and his wife Sara Perez of Mas Martinet. Breathing new life into the region, they are ecological conservationists at the core, making wines that are clean and unadulterated, soulfully made with minimal intervention.

Making wines in both Priorat, and Montsant, under their own label, while also having another small project with friends, at the same time as they’re raising their small brood of children, phew... So much going on, yet with an unwavering commitment to their idealism, the future looks so bright.

Additional Info

From The Producer

Bright and fresh red cherry fruit marked by mint and other local herbs, the wine shows the clear crunch of granite soil. Juicy and direct with macerated herbs, licorice and briar in lovely pastille fruit. Good concentration, rich-but-not-sweet country wine, it's all briar-herb-cane-brambly, with a nice little nudge of spice, allspice husk and leather in the soft savoury juice and a touch of chocolate in the soft leathery tannin. Clear and direct, with absolutely no wine-making clutter, it is delicately structured and savoury. A smasher.

    Smooth like stroking a cat…

    Seamless blend, good red/dark fruits with warm spice hints on the nose. Palate takes off for me, even with good line and length, and a smooth soft texture that reminded me of a Rhone maker who likened his wine’s mouthfeel to stroking a cat’s back (soft but with supple muscle). NB needs decanting and aerating to breath off the SO2 - looked it’s best on night three after opening.

I am trying to add more of a wine to my cart but it won’t let me? This means we are running low on stock of that wine.
