Joan d'Anguera

The D’Anguera family has been on the same property with the same vineyard since 1820. Needless to say, they are experts of their craft. With seven generations of winemaking in the family, the father of current owners Joan and Josep was a maverick of winemaking and the first to plant the Syrah grape in the area.

Following their father’s untimely death in the late 90’s, Joan and Josep made a significant shift with the help of their mother Merce. Moving away from the Monsant style commercialized with heavy extraction and alcohol they were inspired to make more delicate, feminine, floral  wines that still have tremendous weight and power. They looked at their terroir and saw that they had more similarities to the Côtes du Rhône area in France.

After a visit to Château Rayas and the support of Cuvée 3000 owner Joan Valencia (one of the most influential wine distributors in Spain) they set out in earnest.

Joan and Josep began pulling the Syrah vines out and grafting Grenache, transforming and personalizing their winemaking style and methods. Using biodynamic farming practices, crushing by foot and only partially de-stemming vines, Joan D’Anguerra wines were quickly certified by the Demeter Biodynamic® Processing Standard.

Cosecha founders had a chance to crush some of the grapes along with Joan and Josep, ensuring a little bit of Cosecha in each and every bottle. The wines are a fresh, contemporary iteration of Priorat wine and a new spin on the Montsant DO’s flavour profile.

    Planella 2018

    $210.00

    $35.00 per bottle | $210.00 case of 6

    (plus tax and bottle deposit)

    Planella is comprised of a blend of 50% Carignan, 45% Syrah and 5% Garnatxa sourced from 15 to 50 year old vines growing in the stony, calcareous soils of Finca Planella vineyard’s north-facing slopes.

    Concrete fermentation is followed by 12 months of aging in old oak barrels. As with Joan d'Anguera’s other wines, the Planella is naturally cold stabilized by the winter’’s chill and bottled unfiltered.

    Bright violet in colour, the vintage is truly Mediterranean in its profile. The fragrant nose expresses notes of strawberries and flowers with touches of fennel. On the palate, fresh red berries, Asian spices and anise are balanced with good minerality and acidity.

    Bright and youthfully, the impressive finish provides lingering spiciness.This wine will put on weight with a few more years of bottle age but holds plenty of appeal for those who can’t wait.

    Alcohol: 14%

    "Roses" says it all!

    The Altaroses was Joan d'Anguera's first certified bio-dynamic and organic wine.

    The Garnatxa grapes, grown in limestone and clay soils. The malolactic fermentation takes place in concrete vats using indigenous yeasts. Aged for 12 months in old oak, the wine in naturally cold stabilized by the winter’s chill, then bottled unfined and unfiltered.

    The nose is that of fresh, wild strawberries, garrigue and toasted spices. Very expressive, it has mouth-watering acidity and soft, ripe red fruits coming through on the finish. Possessing an excellent balanced structure, there is a lively interplay of acidity, tannin, fruit and alcohol.

    This is an “easy” wine to consume but maybe not so easy to understand and in a blind tasting you’ll swear it wasn’t from the Montsant!

    This wine is the most exclusive offering from Cellers Joan D'Anguera, made with the family's oldest parcels of Carinyena (Carignan) in Montsant. This hardy grape variety was known to survive scorching hot summers and was once forgotten by winemakers.

    However, with the mastery and unique, lengthy ageing process used by Joan D'Anguera winemakers, the Carinyena grape absolutely flourishes as L'Hostal.  

    The wine is made with alcoholic and malolactic fermentation in concrete vats using indigenous yeasts. Aged for 36 months in old French oak barrels then 12 months in bottle. The wine is naturally cold stabilized by winter’s chill and bottled unfined and unfiltered.

    This wine is deep and incredibly complex red. The palate is refined with a carry-over of the herbal overtones framed by an attractive fruit component. A delicious wine to watch evolve over time.

    The Finca L’Argatà 2016 is made from 85% Garnatxa and 15% Syrah, fermented in concrete, then aged in old oak barrels. The old vine Garnatxa in the 2016 vintage has a higher level of refinement than previous vintages, as the brothers continue to develop their approach to winemaking.

    Bright ruby-red, the Finca l’Argata offers aromas and flavours of ripe dark berries and cherry, liquorice and smoky herbs.

    Fleshy and broad on entry, then tighter in the middle, the Finca l’Argata tastes of sweet cherry compote, blackberry, with a touch of bitter chocolate. Dusty tannins help shape the long, floral and spice-accented finish.

    Alcohol: 14%
