2017 Cosmic Vinyaters Encarinyades 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.
80% Carignan Blanc, 15% Carignan Rouge, 5% Carignan Gris. 60% destemmed, 4 days maceration in Amphora. 40% foot stomped and fermented in Old Chestnut . Serve as a Rosé. This is the first vintage of Encarinyades, a mix of older vines and younger ones that Salva has planted. The nose is driven by red fruits and florals, the palate feels free yet with depth and structure and an abundance of energy.
