Isolated in the elite Valley of Priorat, our grapes cluster and dangle like royal jewels on vines stretching across steep licorella soiled hillsides in this regal land. A wine with a wealth of bold mature fruit gives a natural sweetness with dense color, great acidity and a unique minerality.
The grapes were handpicked at the optimum stage of ripeness during the first 15 days October from old low yielding bush vines. Grapes selected on selection table before being gently de-stemmed and transferred by conveyor belt into stainless steel tanks of 20.000 kilos. Temperature controlled fermentation at 26-28ºC with daily manual pump over for 21 days. Pressed and racked into stainless steel tanks where the wine underwent malolactic fermentation. Clarified and filtered before bottling.
Clear deep dark purple colour. Pure and very intense aromas reminiscent of red berry fruit such as cranberries, red cherries and raspberries combined with mineral notes of flint and hints of eucalyptus. The palate is dry, full bodied with rich concentrated juicy fruit, firm but ripe tannins and a refreshing acidity making this a great food wine that will age very well for 4-6 years.
