Tasting notes

This is a well-balanced garnacha and tempranillo blend with notes of black fruit, tobacco and chocolate.

Priorat is somewhat of a mecca of the wine world. Thanks to its volcanic history, the Priorat landscape is rough with rocky ground, which offers many nutritions for growing grape vines, but is - well - a pain in the butt when it comes to harvesting grapes. That’s why Prioratians grow terrace shaped vineyards, you know, like tea in Indonesia. Our favourite Prioratian is Roger Grifoll Declara, our partner farmer who grows the garnacha grapes in this fortified wine. He’s had experience in wineries all over the world and as if that didn’t make him the perfect partner already: he’s a dog person as well.

Garnacha - or how the French call the grape, grenache - is a heavy red grape, which found its origins in Spain but is being grown nowadays pretty much everywhere. We get our garnacha from good ol’ Priorat because it's a classic, robust region which can help create some very powerful wines.

This is a low-intervention wine using spontaneous fermentation on indigenous yeast (naturally present in the grapes) and no filtering of the wine. It was made by our founding winemaker.

Unfiltered and shrouded in mystery. This is one for late night philosophy - you might just find the answers you seek at the bottom of the bottle. Goes perfectly together with pasta, and not too spicy food.

Eye: Ruby red, medium intensity.
Nose: black fruit, tobacco, chocolate
Mouth: black fruit, raisins
Finish: round, nice balance of oak/vanilla and fruit. Nice tannins.
Identity: well-balanced aperitif
