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.
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.
