This is so perfumed and floral; it just rises out of the glass with crushed berries, strawberries and violets. Medium to full body. Firm and silky tannins. Lovely length and brightness for this hot and dry vintage. Drink or hold.

An ancient, spiritual and fascinating landscape.
A small universe of supernatural force.
El Priorat, the mineral essence of a unique Mediterranean.
In 1989 we arrived in this small region of crowded villages and centuries-old vineyards hanging from impossible slopes of slate.
The Escaladei Charterhouse developed the Priorat vineyard since the 12th century. Their presence forged a deep identity, preserved by the hard work of ancestral viticulture.
The steep soils of brittle slate, known as llicorella, are subjected to an extremely dry climate, illuminated by the mirror of the sea.
