Overview

Vermell is a blend featuring 70% Garnacha Tintorera – a 19th-century, French crossing of Garnacha and Aramon Noir that was widely planted after phylloxera. It was initially prized for its dark color (its flesh is red as well as its skins) and productive yields. It gradually found its way to Iberia with significant plantings in Galicia, La Mancha, Valencia, and Southern Portugal. Vermell also includes 30% younger vine Mandó. Hand harvested, destemmed and fermented by natural yeasts in stainless steel tanks and stone lagars, then aged in amphorae, Vermell showcases the typical bright, red-berried, and herbal flavors of Garnacha Tintorera without being overripe, overbearing, or overloaded with oak. It is an excellent introduction to the new “old style” of wines being made at Celler del Roure.
