Tasting Note:

This 100% Garnacha cuvee hails from the highest Licorella vineyard in Priorat and is aged in glass demi johns. Fermentation is carried out in clay amphora with 100% skins and stalks and pressed after 2-3 weeks. “Since 2015 I have learned to pay attention on the fermentation vessel. In classic enology they only really focus on the aging vessel but that is so wrong.” Ripe silky Grenache with fresh summer berries and plums. A cracked earth and ferrous note on the palate compliments the broad but at the same time focused mouthfeel. A wine with a spicy earthbound minerality and beautifully flowing, seamless ripe fruit.
