Grapes: Blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cariñena/Carignan
Style: Full-bodied dry
The Prades mountains are located southeast of the city of Lleida where the Gothic Cathedral of St. Mary of La Seu was converted into an imposing military fortress in 1707 by King Philip V of Spain. Above 700 meters in these mountains growing on gravel, clay, silt and calcareous sandstone old vines yield Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cariñena, the French Carignan. These are blended to produce Geol. Like other wines we offer from Tomàs Cusiné, this is produced organically and certified as such. Organic fertilisers are made at the winery and organic matter is controlled and ground-layer vegetation is preserved. After harvest, the indigenous yeasts of the vines are selected for fermentation. Maceration and fermentation take place in 5,000 liter tanks followed by aging for 12-14 months in 1-2 year old 600 liter French oak barrels. On the nose, there are aromas of black berries with hints of cedar, eucalyptus and chocolate. On the palate flavours of plums and blackberries accompany this mouth-filling, full-bodied and powerful wine with a beautiful finish. Perfect with red meat dishes, pasta and poultry.
