WINEMAKING:

This  is a young wine from old  vines. The vineyards are located in El Molar (Priorat region) and range from 40 and 80 years old.  After a process of hand harvest and selection in the vineyard and the cellar the grapes were desestemed  and placed in French oak 600 litter barrels for a period of maceration and fermentation. A gentle extraction during the fermentation allowed a balanced wine. After fermentation the wine passed for a period of reductive aging of 6 months in stainless steel tanks. This  wine was bottled without any kind of clarification or filtration.

 

CHARACTER:

Old  vines have the ability to make wines with great structure, concentration and power. The colour of the wine is intense purple. In the nose a intense red / black fruit and spices appears and it develops extraordinarily in glass. In mouth the ripe tannins are perfectly blended with a well  balanced acidity. Notes of plum jam  and red fruits become intense on the palate, along with ripe tannins that provide a pleasant silkiness. The long maturity of its  Grenache fruit adds complexity to this Mediterranean wine.
