A forest glade, that magical bald spot where the light breaks through the gloom. Little more to add to the imagination, except that its exquisite palate contains the spiritual essences of the Priorat. Dressed with a white velvet label, like the layers of the Carthusians who started the viticulture in this unique place.
12 months aged red wine
Garnacha, Cariñena, Syrah & Cabernet-Sauvignon
The hand-picked grapes, collected in 16kg baskets, were fermented separately in small stainless steel open vats of 15 & 30 Hl with 1-2 daily pump-overs, and one part in 500L French oak barrels with 2 daily punch-downs. Each varietal was aged separately in French oak barrels with 600, 300 & 225L of capacity for 12 months and finally blended.
The wine has notes of licorice and fennel, typical from this area, giving it a very Mediterranean profile, and shows concentration, ripeness, balance and acidity. The polished finish is long and lingering with elegant tannins.
This wine is recommended to share with medium and long cured cheeses, pasta bakes, spicy sausage dishes, grilled steaks, roast chicken and roast duck, braised beef and wintry casseroles.
It is recommended to store the wine in places devoid of foreign odors, with a temperature not exceeding 18 ºC and a controlled humidity. The bottles should be stored horizontally, leaving the cork in contact with the wine, thus favoring a perfect closure and avoiding oxidation.
To fully enjoy this wine, the temperature must be between 15 ºC and 18 ºC
