Details for Abadal 3.9 2016
Bottle size and vintage
Abadal 3.9 is the Masies d'Avinyó estate wine, and the one which expresses best the characteristics of the terrain: limestone on red clay with areas of forest nearby that confer minerality on the wine and a rich expression of aromas, particularly balsamic, along with red fruit (cherry and redcurrant) and ripe plums, on a spicy, vanilla background. Full-bodied and powerful on the palate, it reveals smooth, rounded tannins and ends on a lengthy finish with hints of cocoa and blackcurrant.
NOTE: It is advisable to open the bottle about 30 minutes before serving.
Ageing takes place over 12 months in new French (70%) and American (30%) oak barrels. A total of six different woods are used and three kinds of toasting for each one.
(The Masies d'Avinyó estate is comprised of various plots and parcels. Plot 3 parcel 9 is where the oldest Cabernet and Syrah vines are to be found, which are used to produce Abadal 3.9).
