Peraj Ha'abib 2015, among the best wines of the year 2017 according to Yossi Hortwitz!
In December we had the pleasure of receiving the renowned taster of kosher wines. Our winemaker Jürgen Wagner shared with him their passion for the kosher wines that Capçanes has been making for the last 23 years.
- Capcanes, Peraj Ha’Abib, Flor de Primavera, Montsant, 2015: "As noted above, Capcanes is one of those wines that make a play for this list every year, usually getting its way and 2015 was no exception. . As always, a blend of the winery’s three varietals – Cabernet Sauvignon, Grenache and Carignan (the latter two also bottled as individual varietals in the La Flor series), with this years blend around 55% Grenache, 30% Carignan and approximately 25% Cabernet Sauvignon. With even more Grenache than the 2014’s already increased percentage, Jürgen’s love of the floral elegance and supple finesse the varietal brings to the blend is obvious. Deep, rich and extracted on both the nose and full bodied palate with loads of rich black fruit, tar, floral notes, lavender, dark chocolate, fresh-cracked black pepper and roasted game along with lovely bitter herbal notes on a bed of gripping yet supple tannins and great acidity that keeps things vibrant. Layers of aromas reveal themselves slowly and lead into a mouth-filling and lingering finish. A rich and powerful wines that is still coming into its own, and the high-quality grape and masterful winemaking ensure that the 15% AbV doesn’t get in the way. Give this one until mid-2019 before opening and then enjoy through 2030, maybe longer."
