The wine

The Carles Andreu Trepat Novell is a wine which brings out the best of the Trepat grape and a simple, direct production method. The Trepat grapes vinified with carbonic maceration, a common method in regions like Rioja, allow Bernat Andreu and his team to offer a perfect portrayal of the Trepat and the spectacular appellation of Conca de Barberà through an extraordinary wine.

This is essentially a primary wine, but not an obvious one — rather, it is a delicate one. It achieves a degree of complexity thanks to its spontaneity, and the transparency and honesty with which the fruit is worked, both on the land and in the winery. In fact, if we couldn’t see the label, we might not realize this wine is produced with carbonic maceration. Although its aroma is clearly fruit-based, it is far from the sweeter and more caramelized aromas of other wines produced this way. With this novell (new wine) we find yeast aromas mixed in with ripe wild fruit, mandarin peel, and hints of scrubland. Still crispy in the mouth thanks to carbonic traces which extol its aromas and facilitate a light and barely tannic pass through the mouth, it covers the omnipresent fruit with discrete spices like cloves and pink pepper pods. A body of lightly lactic hints and fragile flowers give it a touch of distinction. Best served quite cool (12º-14º), the Carles Andreu Trepat Novell will bring out the best in even the simplest of foods, such as toast and cold meats, pizza, pasta, mild cheese, or veal carpaccio.
