Ritme



JUICY & SPICY


70% Carignan and 30% Grenache from six field areas at 300-750 m altitude. After a long maceration and fermentation with regular meshing of the solids in the must, it is carried by gravity only to French oak barrels. Here the second fermentation/malolactic fermentation takes place, and the wine stores in the same barrels with the fermentation residue for 10 months.


SAFTIG & KRYDRET


70% Carignan og 30% Grenache fra seks markområder i 300-750 m.s højde. Efter lang udblødning og gæring med jævnlig netrykning af faststofferne i mosten føres den ved tyngdekraft alene til franske egefade. Her sker 2. gæringen/den malolaktiske gæring, og vinen lagrer i samme fade med gæringsresterne i 10 mdr.

ABOUT THE WINERY


RITME CELLER


The young Albert Jané grows this wine on the special Licorella earthy dry rock. The yield is extremely small - barely over 20 hl/ha and the vines extremely old - a good deal over 100 years. The wines have gained a great reputation in Spain and are also on the way in other countries. The methods are by nature organic. All work is done by hand both before and after the harvest. The grapes are pressed very gently and get a long fermentation before the wine is gravitated down to malolactic fermentation and storage in barrels of French oak.


Den unge Albert Jané gror denne vin på den særlige Licorella jordmager tør klippe. Udbyttet er ekstremt lille -næppe over 20 hl/ha, vinstokkene ekstremt gamle -en god del over 100 år. Vinene har fået et meget stort ry i Spanien og er også på vej i andre lande. Metoderne er af naturen økologiske (om en uden certifikat). Alt arbejde foregår ved håndkraft såvel før som efter vinhøsten. Druerne presses meget blidt og får en lang gæring, før vinen ved tyngdekraft føres ned til malolaktisk gæring og lagring i fade af fransk eg.


General grape descriptions



Grenache


Grenache is an unlikely hero of a grape. Until recently reviled or at best ignored in much of the world, it is the grape chiefly responsible for two of the world's more celebrated reds, Châteauneuf-du-Pape and, a more recent star, Priorat.


Carignan


Carignane in the US, Carignano in Italy, and Cariñena in Spain. Carignan is a curious red wine grape that provokes strong reactions in those who know about it. Yet, despite the fact it was the single most common vine variety planted in the world's most important wine producer France until it was overtaken by Merlot at the end of the 20th century, most wine drinkers have never heard of it. 

Carignan's origins are presumed Spanish although the variety was long since supplanted by Garnacha (Grenache) in its native Cariñena in Aragon. 

As a wine, Carignan can be pretty tough too. The wine produced is typically high in rough tannins and acidity and in southern France the softening vinification method of carbonic maceration routinely has to be used to ensure that wines made from Carignan can be drunk reasonably young.
