The eponymous red 2018 Acústic is a blend of 70% Cariñena and 30% Garnacha from across Montsant and matured in used barrels for nine to 10 months. It's not a light wine, at 15% alcohol, but it has compensating acidity. The nose is quite fruit-driven, the ripeness is restrained for the alcohol level, the oak is neatly integrated, and the wine is juicy and tasty, with polished tannins and nice balance. ...

Winery
Vineyard, pure unplugged juice wine. It has an elegant blackberry, raspberry and wild hedgerow scented bouquet with judicious oak playing a backseat role. The palate is rounded and supple on the entry, with very pure, sweet, precocious black fruit balanced by good acidity.

Region: Cataluna

The beautiful Spanish wine region of Catalunya has a history of viticulture which stretches back for over a thousand years, and has been influenced by a wide range of people who moved through the region, and brought their wine making skills and expertise with them. The region itself is a sizeable one, covering an area of sixty thousand hectares, and within this space there resides over two hundred individual wineries, ranging from small, independent and traditional ones to the larger, mass production bodegas known around the world. The terroir of Catalunya is varied, and ranges from being dry and arid, to more lush and green in the wetter parts of the region which are closer to the coast. This variation in terroir results in a fantastic range of grape varietals being grown, and a wide range of wine styles are produced within Catalunya.

Country: Spain

Ever since the Phoenicians and Romans brought their knowledge of vine cultivation to Spanish soils, the country's culture has grown alongside wine production, with wine being a vital part of Spanish identity and Spanish traditions. Each region of Spain has a wine quite distinct from the others, and it is produced by smallholders and families as much as it is by large companies and established wineries. From the relatively mild and lush regions of La Rioja to the arid plateaus that surround Madrid, grapes are grown in abundance for the now booming Spanish wine industry, and new laws and regulations have recently been put in place to keep the country's standards high. By combining traditional practices with modern technology, Spanish wineries are continuing to produce distinctive wines of great character, flavor and aroma, with the focus shifting in recent decades to quality over quantity.
