Josep Foraster "Julieta" 2017, Conca de BarberaRegular price $28.99
Mas Foraster is a winery of reference for the Trepat variety. The family Foraster has been growing grapes in Conca de Barbera for over 150 years. The vineyards are located in a valley surrounded by mountains at an altitude of 400 m, to 600 m, 30 km from the sea; sharing its southern border with Priorat and Montsant. Julieta is a tribute to Ricard's mother and daughter. Trepat is the native variety of the Conca de Barberà. There are only 1100 hectares of this variety in the world, and 1000 of them are grown in Conca de Barberà. Julieta is a very energetic red wine that expresses maximum purity of Trepat grape. Certified organic, from 65+ year old vines, hand-harvested, and aged for 7 months in concrete egg. Miniscule production, at only 2000 bottles/year. For lovers of bright, high-toned Beaujolais, Poulsard/Trousseau, this is your new go-to. Delicious with a slight chill, and a delight with creamy raclette, as aperitif, or with an afternoon BBQ.
