Trepat transformed: the grape known for its straightforward pink Cavas here delivers a delicate still red. The winery is within the historic Poblet Abbey and the vines are historic, too: planted in 1915. Fine still wines from Trepat are not common. This is a glorious showcase: aromatic with pomegranates and wild herbs, white pepper and mild tannin. Font Voltada refers to the 'fenced-in fountain’, an old feature on the site.
