Purveyors of fine grape juice
2017 Cosmic Vinyaters Confianca emporda, spain
$65

Salvador Batllle comes from a viticulture family based in Penedes.
He started making wine in his late teenage years and studied agriculture, viticulture, winemaking and solar energy. In 2011 he travelled to New Zealand to better his English before returning to the family property in Penedes. But Salva and his father butted heads, and so in 2013 he found a cellar in the small town of Agullana, Emporda, that came with a few hectares of vines, 10 km from the French border.
2 days on skins, fermented in Amphora. Roses, strawberries and a hint of orange blossom, fine tannin’s interspersed with acid pops dart in and out, finesse, freshness and power. Will benefit decanting.
