Josep Foraster – Trepat
Josep Foraster Trepat is a great all-rounder for a dinner table. It is ideal with many kinds of vegetable and meat dishes, pasta and cheese, and even with salmon. It’s a queen of a tapas table. The rare trepat grape is the essence of the Conca de Barberà area.
In a glass
The wine has an intense aroma of forest fruits, with a light background of blood orange and white pepper. In the mouth, it surprises with its elegance. Wine is very expressive, fresh, with a lot of fruit, mineral and very persistent. Serve slightly chilled, around 14-16°C.
