Tasting Note

An intriguing blend of Cabernet’s dark fruits and spice alongside the plummy, nutty notes of Tempranillo, this also shows an unusually ripe character to Costers Segre wines, but the mouth and finish are less intense and more balanced. Drink soon or in the next few years.

Wine Description

The nude rocks of the upper part of Les Carrigues give character to the vines we grow there and the origin of the name for this exclusive organic wine. Powerful, complex, intense and concentrated but with silky lively aromas, Roc Nu has hints of ripe fruit, jams, a toasty and aniseed flavor, and a long aftertaste. The finish is round and big with strong acidity and extremely long persistence. The best organic plots of our vineyards produce the fruit that, selected in the same vine, were the basis for this wine. At the winery, the use of the best technology under the expert direction of the most qualified people provided the means for obtaining a wine, that, above all, is the expression of land from which is comes.

About the Winery

Clos Pons, located in the Les Garrigues district in the south of the province Lleida, is the expression of the relationship between the Pons family and its land. After several generations in high-quality olive oil cultivation, we initiated this new wine project. Our wines gather the signs of identity of the land and extreme climate of Les Carrigues - low rainfall, extreme temperatures, rough land and poor organic soils defined by different mineral compositions represent the suitable setting to produce high-quality wines.
