This is the perfect example of a wine made in a style where traditional meets modern and playful. Alana McGettigan is a Kiwi who takes a fun, yet talented approach to making wines around the world. She has purchased fruit sourced from the northern area of Abruzzo around San Salvo and created an approachable, everyday, drinkable wine. The Montepulciano grapes are carefully handled, fermented and aged in stainless tanks for freshness, then bottled with the intention that consumers will consume the wine immediately.
The Clua cellar is situated outside of Vilaba dels Arcs in Catalonia. This arid and sunny region has been making wine since medieval times. Since 1995 Xavier Clua has been focusing his efforts on updating the farming and reducing yields to produce wines with greater complexity and concentration. In 2006, the Clua family invested in a new facility with cutting edge technology, which has helped with refining the wine and its style even further. Despite the modern facility, the wine remains traditional. The blend is a combination of 40% Garnacha, 20% Cabernet Sauv
