This is a bit different from Joan d'Anguera's usual wines, which tend to have a fairly weighty palate and intense fruit profile. With ‘Les Maiols’, wine-making brothers Joan and Josep have made an ethereal style of Garnacha that reminds us of good Gamay. Perfumed, crunchy and beautifully floral this is made from the Anguera family’s younger vines. One to pop in the fridge, chill down, and enjoy with BBQ and sunshine.

About Joan d'Anguera

The Anguera family have been farming in Montsant for seven generations. Joan and Josep decided to completely overhaul how these vines have been historically farmed, breathing modern ideas into the winery and creating a very dynamic, exciting project.

They started in the vineyards: working biodynamically and achieving Demeter certification in 2011; they top-grafted traditional varietals Grenache and Carignan onto existing Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon vines, and are removing trellising in favour of lower-yielding gobelet vines. With fruit quality improving they were able to move to low intervention in the winery, using whole cluster ferments, old oak, and dramatically reducing sulphur use. The results are mind-blowing – balanced and elegant biodynamic wines.
