Im Glas dunkles Rubinrot mit violetten Reflexionen. Fruchtige Aromen von süßen Kirschen und Pflaumen, dazu Tabak und ein Hauch Lorbeerblätter und Salbei. Am Gaumen saftige Frucht, klare, frische Säure und sublim strukturierende Tannine. Langer, delikater Abgang. Parker-Neal Martin 90:The 2011 Flor de Englora “Garnatxa” comes from 35-year-old vines and sees no new oak. It has a ripe dark plum and cranberry-scented bouquet that is quite dense and powerful, with touches of undergrowth emerging with aeration. The palate is crisp and animated on the entry with a citric thread of acidity interwoven through a ripe cranberry, pomegranate and wild strawberry fruit profile. The tannins are edgy and brittle, lending fine tension, while the finish is a little abrupt, but by then you are already satisfied. This is a very fine, natural Montsant red. Drink now-2016. Baronia del Montsant is a three-hectare estate in Cornudella de Montsant belonging to Carlos Macias and Xavier Canals. They are now also managing their neighbour’s estate, from which the first four wines originate.
