Appellation d’Origine Garantie Coteaux de Mascara
Grape Varieties : Grenache – Cinsault – Alicante
Gold Medal at the Concours Mondial Brussels 2015
Koutoubia is a beautifully deep, intense color, with a nose of very ripe red fruit. The elegant palate offers supple tannins which reflect the character of the terroir. The opulence of Grenache and the fruit of Cinsault confer a unique identity on this premium Algerian wine.
The Coteaux de Mascara are situated on alluvial sandy clay soils 350 kilometers west of Algiers at an altitude of 750m. This terroir with its excellent sunshine exposure is ideal for producing concentrated and aromatic grapes.
The grapes are entirely sorted, destemmed and crushed manually. Vatting lasts around 20 days. Successive pumping over allows the extraction of color and tannins and oxygenation of the yeasts. Koutoubia is matured for 15 months before being bottled.
This young wine will appreciate airing to allow full expression to its aromas.
