About This Wine...

75% Red Grenache and 25% Cariñena – from 9 villages of Priorat Històric: Bellmunt, Gratallops, El Lloar, Escaladei, Poboleda, Porrera, Torroja, Vilella Alta, Vilella Baixa

The vines average 35 – 50 years old and are grown at an altitude of 350 – 800 metres on Slate, Clay, Granite, and Alluvial soils.

Vinification
The harvest is completely done by hand, using boxes that hold a maximum of 12 kilos in to protect grape as much as possible. Using the technique common in the Priorat prior to the industrialisation of the winemaking companies, the grapes are placed whole in cement tanks and gently trodden. The vats are then closed and time is given for the yeasts of the vineyard to do their work. Made with minimum intervention, there is no pigeage or remontage, this could then be referred to as the ‘infusion’ of the grape. This gives a transparent, smooth and easy-to-drink wine. The press, which is horizontal and pneumatic, is used at low pressure to allow the wine to express all the fruit from its interior, thus making it a totally gastronomic wine.

Ageing
Cement was the only possible choice for the philosophy of the project. Terroir Històric Red reposes for 6 months in cement vats. The end result is a new interpretation of the Priorat terroir without the loss of its roots.
