Catalan Eagle takes its name from the bird that soars above the nature reserve close to the winery.
Pepe Fuster makes wine from his 26 hectare vineyard in Terra Alta which is near Tarragona in southern Catalonia. The vineyard is organically certified and the Catalan Eagle red wine was fully certified from 2012 onwards.
Catalan Eagle red is the partner to the highly successful organic Catalan Eagle white. Savoury, minerally flavours from old vine Garnacha and Cariñena are complemented by the smokiness and backbone of the Syrah and Cabernet.
A month's contact with French oak staves after fermentation and prior to belnding adds a touch of vanilla and complexity. Principally limey, stoney and clay soil mix.
