Cellers de Can Suriol del Castell is owned by the Suriol family and located in Alt Penedes, in the Province of Barcelona, Catalunya, a region well-known for its wine and cava production. The Can Suriol vineyards are certified organic (CCPAE certified), with vines averaging 20 years in age. Estate-grown fruit is bottled under the Suriol label, while the Azimut line is made from grapes purchased from their neighbors, all of whom work organically. The Azimut Negre is a blend of 40% Ull de Liebre (tempranillo), 20% garnatxa, 20% monastrell, 10% syrah, and 10% samsó (carignan), from a 5 ha vineyard situated at 250 meters elevation. Grapes are vinified in 15,000-liter stainless steel tanks for 20 days, using only indigenous yeasts. The wine then goes into concrete tanks for 8-15 months, where it undergoes malolactic fermentation and battonage for 3 months. It is unfined and filtered with a soft paper filter to remove sediment, with a tiny amount of sulfur added at bottling. The result is a medium-bodied mouthful of lip-smacking black cherry, blackcurrant, and mulberry, with hints of tobacco leaf, humidor, and smoldering campfire. Refreshing acidity and well-integrated tannins cleanse the palate after every sip. This is a versatile partner to pair with a wide variety of foods, and one of our favorite values to boot! Organically grown, low-intervention/natural wine, vegan.
