VERMUT DE FALSET – The Spanish Vermouth from Falset Tarragona
VERMUT DE FALSET
” White Grenache and Macabeo.
Colour: Vermut de Falset is an intense amber colour, clear and bright with flecks of mahogany.
Nose: It offers up potent Mediterranean dried herbs such as rosemary, thyme and wild fennel. There are also hints of eucalyptus, tobacco leaves and a blend of the aromatic herbs which were used during maceration. There are touches of seasoned wood in the background as well as moist earth, truffle and honey.
Palate: A very balanced vermouth, with just enough sweetness and a sublime contrast between acidity and bitterness. On the whole, it is a well-rounded vermouth as well as being very unusual.
Food and wine pairing: Vermut de Falset is ideal as an aperitif, with olives, crisps and some cockles in vinegar or with canapés and more sophisticated foods.
We recommend you serve Vermut de Falset slightly chilled
Vermut de Falset is made using White Grenache and Macabeo grapes on their stems (brisat), which are then fermented on their skins just like in red wine production. The result is a very aromatic wine which is a pale golden yellow colour. When the wine is ready, it is fined, filtered and a special infusion is added made up of more than 120 different herbs which will be left to macerate for more than a year in 500 and 600 litre oak barrels. The exact proportions and components which make up the infusion are a faithful reproduction of the original recipe which Falset-Marçà Cooperative has been using since 1919.
This infusion is added then to the base wine in suitable proportions, the sweetness is corrected and it is left to rest for nearly three years in oak vats.
The vermouth is bottled in small quantities and the vats are re-filled and are never completely emptied. Thus, the vermouth will spend part of its time in wooden vats which are more than a hundred years old. Vermut de Falset is bottled without any physical or chemical modifications which may cause some settling in the bottom of the bottle over time. ”
