ACUSTIC AUDITORY MONTSANT GRENACHE 2013
I was waiting for the 2013 Auditori to be bottled (April 2015), and it was worth the wait. This impressive Garnacha from old vines in three separate plots on clay, sand, boulders and slate soils, matured for some 13 months exclusively in used, low-toast oak barrels to respect the wine. It has a very expressive nose mixing aromas of menthol, black olives and mineral, peat-like sensations with superb fruit aromas that have no traces of oak, even at this very early stage. The palate is medium to full-bodied with great acidity and fine tannins, and offers superb intensity. This is a powerful Garnacha, dark-colored, almost opaque and while it feels dense the palate is agile. It is very good now, and with the balance and stuffing it has it should develop nicely in bottle. It ends very tasty. Reading the technical data, I was amazed at the pH, 3.25. No wonder it feels fresh... 3,550 bottles.
