Azimut Negre

$23.98

The Suriol family have been farming the land of Castell de Grabuac since the early 1600’s. Prior to this the family had been living in the area for 500 years. Initially given to mixed agriculture, the estate was heavily impacted by the phylloxera outbreak of the late 1800’s. Replanting the vines to American rootstock, the family were able to bottle their first wines in the 1940’s and sell them to local tavernas. In the 1980’s Francesc Suriol Cantí, a chemistry graduate and oenologist, introduced the production of sparkling wines. The 1990’s saw a move to organic viticulture and eventually the Suriol’s introduced aspects of biodynamics. Managed today by Assís Suriol, the estate consists of 30 hectares of vineyards. For the Azimut wines Assís sources grapes from like minded growers who farm organically.

“A lighter bodied red that does not disappoint on complexity, showing all kinds of red and black fruit with a savoury personality. The Negre even offers notes of orange peel, mint, and a peppery earthiness as it breathes. Fermented spontaneously with indigenous yeast in Suriol’s underground concrete tanks for twelve months, this beautiful red is everything you hope a traditional Mediterranean table wine will be: honest, satiating, and utterly crushable.” – Andrew Stewart, Vino al Vino
