This wine is a ‘Vi de Vila’ – made from grapes harvested from a single village (in this case 40 year old PX vines from the village of Poboleda). The wine is fermented in modern egg-shaped polypropylene tanks to enable controlled micro-oxygenation. It is then aged on the lees for 3 months before being bottled unoaked.
One of only 2 Spanish regions awarded DOQ status (the other is Rioja), Priorat is known for the quality of its wines from rocky, silica slate (Llicorella) soils. The high diurnal range in Priorat contributes to producing fresh, aromatic wines.
