More information

The estate where the grapes are grown for this wine are located on steep slopes of "Llicorella", a loose granite-like soil typical of the now prestigious, Priorat region. The age of the vines varies between 25 and 40 years. The production of the wine begins with the monitoring of each vineyard plot through a process of tasting and scientific analysis, leading to the first selection of the grapes from the vineyard. The harvesting of the grapes is done by hand and put into small individual boxes to protect them from crushing during transit. Once these grapes arrive at the winery, a second selection of grapes takes place to separate only the best quality berries. The harvest from each plot is fermented in separate, small, stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature between 22 and 24 degrees Celsius, with daily micro-oxidation and racking. This results in the extraction of excellent wine must, rich in colour and aroma. After fermentation has been completed, the wine undergoes an ageing process in naturally dried French and American oak barrels with different toasted intensities for 8 months, adding complexity, stability and maximum elegance to the wine.

Priorat wines have become a bit of a sensation in the last decade with the region becoming a bit of a cult with wine lovers, enthusiasts and wine commentators, so much so, the prices for the wines have rocketed in recent years and the best wines have become somewhat elusive. Here you have an opportunity to try a good Priorat wine at a reasonable price and we think it delivers.
