Fruity, fresh and expressive. A genuine young and delicious Priorat wine.

  • SOILS & VINES: Grapes grown exclusively on steep slate “licorella” hillsides (350/450 m.) with yields of 1kg / vine.
  • VINTAGE AND CLIMATE: This vintage will be remembered for the heat wave by the end of June, with temperatures up to 43ºC which especially affected Carignan. A warm summer with rains that refreshed the vineyard and allowed optimal conditions for healthy, concentrated and well-balanced grapes. High quality with slightly lower yields.
