Winemaker Notes

Pinyolet Seleccion is produced from old Garnacha and Cariñena vines that are organically grown. The Masroig subzone of Montsant, were Pinyolet Seleccion is produced, is considered by the farmers of this region to have the best and oldest Cariñena vines.

A good pairing would be game birds like quail, pheasant, goose or duck, as well as roast chicken with garlic and dried herbs or roast pork tenderloin. Veal, pork or beef sausage prepared with savory herbs would also be a very good match.

RP 90
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2011 Pinyolet Seleccion (80% Grenache and 20% Carignan) comes from some of the appellation’s oldest vines (planted between 1928 and 1945). It was aged eight months in used French oak. The result is a spicy, earthy red displaying peppery black currant and black cherry fruit, crushed rock/chalky notes, and good minerality, precision, uplift and vibrancy. Medium to full-bodied, but more restrained and elegant than its sibling, it, too, can be enjoyed over the next 2-3 years.

Pinyolet, Spain
Pinyolet is the name of the unique type of soil that makes superior wines in the Montsant appellation. If the best wines in Priorat are produced from Licorella soils, the most singular wines from Montsant are produced from vines tended in Pinyolet soils. A pinyolet is a pebble of limestone that results from the erosion of limestone boulders only found in the upper hills of Montsant. These pebbles of limestone communicate an element of minerality and brightness that is unique to the best wines of this terroir. Even though Montsant is next to Priorat, nothing could be more different. Montsant is cooler and higher in elevation than Priorat. The cooler nights allow Garnacha to retain more acidity and make wines that are uplifted, floral, full of tension, more elegant. In the words of Neal Martin "If Priorat is Pauillac then Montsant is Margaux."

Known for its bold, heady, rustic and age-worthy red wines, Spain is truly a one-of-a-kind wine-producing nation. A great majority of the country is hot, arid and drought-ridden, and since irrigation has only been recently introduced and (controversially) accepted, viticulture has sustained—and flourished—only through a great understanding of Spain’s particular conditions. Large spacing between vines allows each enough resources to survive and as a result, the country has the most acreage under vine compared to any other country, but is usually third in production.

Most planted and respected is Tempranillo, the star of Spain’s Rioja and Ribera del Duero regions. Priorat specializes in bold red blends, Jumilla has gained global recognition for its single varietal Monastrell and Utiel-Requena has garnered recent attention for its reds made of Bobal.
