About the wine
This is a fragrant, light (and new!) red wine from Oriol Artigas who works twelve and a half hectares of vines around his hometown Vilassar de Dalt, located in the Alella region of northeastern Spain.
Tasting Notes: Montmorency cherry and star anise reveal a wine that is utterly distinct, at turns floral and high-acid red fruit. The palate is a bit more grounded: still light bodied but with a stony core. You move from fruit and flower into minerality and salinity - a joyous, singular bottling from Oriol Artigas.
Vinification: Per José Pastor's Selections wonderful website:
"100% Jaqué from a single parcel about 40-50m away from the Mediterranean Sea. Jaqué is a hybrid grape also planted in the USA under the name Black Spanish. One night on the skins before pressing. A new vineyard for Oriol as of 2018. Lloritu is named for a type of fish in the Mediterranean."
