Ca N’Estruc L’Equilibrista 2015

Opaque purple garnet hue

Super rich, smooth, velvety tannins, full body with lovely mineral flecked dark fruit. Not overly ripe - quite restrained, serious, bold.. Like a brooding tall dark stranger.

Complex blackberry fruit aromas with touches of coffee and mocha.

About the Producer

An exquisite Rhone style blend from this historic Catalunyan estate.

The Ca N'Estruc estate dates back to 1548. Here on the slopes of the holy mountain of Montserrat in Esparreguera - half an hour away from Barcelona - Francisco Marti cultivates 22 hectares planted at 165m on alluvial soil.

The estate has a unique microclimate with the vineyards planted to protect vines from the cold north winds whilst optimising sunshine to ensure full ripening. They experience cool summers, mild winters and an average annual temperature of 14ºC.

Grilled Lamb with tomatoes and black olive tapenade

by Nigel Slater

Grilled lamb chops are a delicious match with this wine. I also love the Mediterranean vibe from the black olive tapenade and anchovies that echoes the Catalan origin of this wine. I recommend chilling it for 10 minutes in the fridge before serving.
