August: The Wines of Anna Espelt
Sometimes you know when what you’re tasting is something more than a glass of wine. Anna Espelt’s wines are evocative of an entire place – its atmosphere and aura, its culture and attitude, and yes, its landscape and soil.
She produces a range of four wines – an old vine Garnacha cuvee sourced from various vineyards on her property, two “Pla de Gates” Garnacha-based wines – one red and one white – sourced entirely from the vineyard of Mas Mares in the Cap de Creus, and a Pla de Tudela wine, a special white also from Mas Mares, produced from the local Picapolla.
These are serious and seriously interesting wines that reflect the ocean and granite that gave them life.
