Llum de Lluna means Moonlight in Catalan. It's blend is mostly composed a rare and fantastic grape variety called Llandener Pelut which stands for Hairy Grenache. The vines developed a thin layer of hairs on his leaves to not miss a drop from the morning dew. The wine produced from it is incredibly delicate, floral and concentrated. On top of the flavours of strawberries, leather and a zest of blood orange, you can expect a bouquet of lavender and violettes. Smooth tannins, velvety textures. This wine is bewitching 💫

Vintage: An average level of rain fall after the 2021 harvest was followed by a warm
winter with little rain. Extremely hot summer months drew comparisons
with our first vintage, 2003. Intermittent storms during June/July and August brought rain to some of the maritime vineyards. All the vines were affected by varying levels of hydric stress. Low disease pressure during the growing season. The harvest was early with a large and heathy crop, very little selection required. Ferments was slow due to low levels of nitrogen in the juice. Final wines are characterful, textural and vibrant.
