Tasting Notes

In the D.O. Alella, Spain's smallest appellation and home to a tight-knit group of eight producers across 240 hectares, a treasured family-run winery stands out. Since 1991, the Pujol-Busquets family has been passionately producing certified organic wines and cava. This Red dessert wine unfold a symphony of aromas, where ripe prunes, plums, and dried figs take the center stage, subtly accented by notes of orange peel. What sets their creations apart is their remarkable ability to achieve a harmonious balance between tannins, alcohol, fruit, and acidity.
