- Joseph Puig Terra Alta White (Garnatxa Blanca) 2014 Product #29993 (In Stock)
Joesph Puig's newest project features the work of friends and contacts devloped over a lifetime of making and selling wine and food. Here, Joseph works with a grower/winemaker in Terra Alta, the hilly, rocky, region in the southeastern corner of Cataluna. The wine is 100% white Grenache, fermented cool and aged without oak, and demonstrates why Priorat, Montsant and Terra Alta may be this often fat and flabby varietal's center of excellence.
This 2014 is simply delicious, with generous aromas and flavors of lime, pineapple, peach, tangerine and orange zest in a medium-bodied wine that spreads out to coat your palate with flavor and then snaps into focus on the juicy, minerally, finish. The fresh fruit is simply captivating, and while you'll certainly enjoy this with seafood and salads, you may need to open a second bottle before the cooking is done.
- Joseph Puig Montsant Red (Garnacha) 2013 Product #29992 (In Stock)
From Joseph Puig, this is perfectly ripe Garnatxa Negra aged three months in large (400 liter) French oak barrels for a touch of complexity and spice. The result is a wine with all the ripe, joyful, fruit of a fine Montsant - confit of red raspberry, strawberry, and black cherry - with accents of sweet spice and a touch of minerality. While the flavors say "Monstant," the texture is much more smooth, soft and supple without any rustic, hard, edges. A joyful, delicious, read to drink anytime and an especially fun match for anything on the grill or roasted in the oven.
