Serra & Barcelo

Fourth-generation winemaker Josep Serra grew up in Ribera del Ebre between the DO’s of Montsant and Terra Alta in the South of Spain. He bought two beautiful vineyards in the 90’s which had Garnacha Fina, Garnacha Negre and Cariñena vines planted in 1940, launching his own personal winemaking project, Serra Barcelo in 2009. Josep works with Garnacha Tinto in Montsant, while he also produces Garnacha Blanca and Tinto wines in the neighbouring DO Terra Alta.

Josep is known for his soft-touch approach to making wines, working with the utmost respect for nature and the environment he grows his grapes in. There is a thorough selection process at picking and a second manual selection in the bodega, after which the grapes are gently de-stemmed by hand.

    Aucala Tinto is a beautiful red made from Garnacha Negra. The aroma is intense and complex, with notes of ripe red fruits with balsamic nuances with a subtle mineral touch. 

    The palate is wide, fresh and elegant with a saline touch and fine tannings, which together with its balanced acidity gives the wine a long, fresh and persistent palette.

    Josep Serra gives us a fantastic textured Mediterranean white, beautifully rich, yet free of excess glycerol and florality. In DO Terra Alta, Josep grows Garnacha Blanca from several plots around the village of Gandesa, in the locale known as Aucalà. The landscape here is dominated by Mediterranean pine. 

    The wine features lovely fruit- juicy and fine in the cut green apple and green melon spectrum. The palate is textured and savoury without cloying. It’s waxy and deep with nice lift and a wonderful, textural acid line showing off the fresh chalky-mineral soil.

    There’s very well controlled build, which honours line above all. It’s limpid and beautifully nuanced with saltiness reflecting the former sea bed soils.
