EL PERER 2013
This was the first Single Vineyard produced by Marco Abella. In 2009 carignan of our plot “El Perer” took a spectacular jump in quality. Since then, we are basing Clos Abella in carignan from El Perer.
The quality is so unique that we decided in 2011 to make a collection wine 100% carignan named “El Perer”.
100 % CARINYENA
AGED IN FRENCH OAK BARRELS FOR 18 MONTHS
This single-vineyard Carignan is living proof of how impressive the variety can be, especially when hailing from a top year like 2012. Schisty aromas of blackberry, chocolate and mocha are smooth and alluring. This feels focused, pure and juicy, while dense blackberry, mocha and backing spice flavors tail off with exotic notes of Malabar pepper, toast and the finest black coffee.
