The 2017 Figuera is sourced from two old vineyards planted with Garnacha in the village of La Figuera. It is light and super long, with an herbal twist (à la Cabernet Franc), very spicy, with great complexity, floral and aromatic. The early-harvested grapes fermented with full clusters and indigenous yeasts in concrete vats and were kept in concrete for five to six months. It's very impressive, with a very tasty palate, fine, chalky tannins and very good length. This is a light and elegant Garnacha. It's really impressive for a first harvest and very pure, expressing the variety and place, a cooler part of Montsant in a higher-altitude village where the soils are red and have a strong limestone component. A very light-colored floral red with the spirit of a white. They expect to fill some 4,000 bottles of this in March 2018. LUIS GUTIERREZ, The Wine Advocate
