Clos Figueras, "Forget Me Not" VermouthRegular price $38.00 Save $-38.00
Variety: Garnacha (Grenache) and Carinena (Carignan)
bottle size: 750ml
This is a small project done by duo Christopher and Anne Cannan from their Poblets del Monsant winery outside of Priorat. The vermouth is a specialty of the region of the nearby Catalonia. The base is Grenache and Carignan fortified with over 100 aromatic herbs and spices from the nearby mountains. Even though fortified, the wine only approaches 16% alcohol and ages for 18 months in 500 liter casks. This is ideal aperitif wine enjoyed on ice or on its own with an orange slice. Excellent with olives, nuts, or charcuterie. This could also be used in cocktails like the Manhattan, but the vermouth really shines nicely on its own.
