The wine

Sindicat La Figuera is a wine produced in the traditional way, without using oak, truly authentic and very easy to drink. It’s a pure Garnacha from one of Montsant’s coolest areas, floral, juicy, with a rustic touch and mineral hint. An absolute delight!

This wine is part of a project aiming to restore the production of wines undertaken by the Cooperativa Agrícola Aubacs i Solans in the 1970s. It’s receiving input and assistance from René Barbier Junior. 

What does this wine taste like?

This red wine is a Picota cherry colour, fruity, juicy and fresh, with scents of ripe red fruit, Mediterranean herbs and spicy touches. On the palate it’s supple and soft, with considerable aromatic intensity in the retro-nasal passage. It’s smooth, with a perfect balance between juiciness and acidity. Its tannins are extremely pleasant, a little rustic, but sweet, and it has a slightly liquorice finish. It conceals a mineral (chalk) hint which comes to the fore after a short while in the glass and takes on an omnipresent delicacy that only Garnacha from La Figuera can confer.

Wine critics reviewsReviews by Parker

The unoaked Garnacha red 2019 Sindicat La Figuera is produced in a very simple and traditional way—fermented with a short maceration in underground concrete vats where the wine matured with abundant rackings in the beginning. It's pure Garnacha from vines planted at 400 to 600 meters in altitude, mostly on white clay soils. There are notes of flowers and ripe fruit and an earthy touch. It's juicy, has ripe flavors without excess and some dusty tannins. There were some 35,000 bottles in this very dry year.
