About the Producer

The Ca N'Estruc estate dates back to 1574. Here on the slopes of the holy mountain of Montserrat in Esparreguera - half an hour away from Barcelona - Francisco Marti cultivates 22 hectares planted at 165m on alluvial soil. The plots surround the family farmhouse and winery, and grapes cultivated include Xarel-lo, Moscatell, Garnatxa Blanca, Syrah, Chardonnay and Petit Verdot. The oldest vineyards (average 40 years) are gobelet pruned. The estate has access to an additional 20 hectares of old vine fruit (40-60 years old) from local growers.

The estate has a unique microclimate with the vineyards planted to protect vines from the cold north winds whilst optimising sunshine to ensure full ripening. They experience cool summers, mild winters and an average annual temperature of 14ºC.

Vineyard and Winery

The L'Equilibrista wines are produced from a selection of the best parcels from this old Catalan estate. A blend of Syrah, Garnacha and Carinena (called Samso locally). The individual parcels are fermented separately, then blended. The wine spends 14 months in new French oak barrels.
