Vall Llach Priorat 2001
The vines, which the winery owns on the outskirts of Porrera, are almost centuries old and produce very low quantities - giving this wine its surprisingly sudective character.
Deep and well structured, this magnificent concentration manifests itself in a rich blend of powerful and original aromas and tastes which combine finesse and harmony. A blend of Grenache, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Syrah.
Old vines naturally produce low yields, and Vall Llach reduces yields even further through careful vineyard management for densely concentrated wines. Vineyards climb steep slate hillsides, receiving optimum sun exposure and beneficial water deprivation, further concentrating the fruit. Newer plantings of Garnacha, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah add complexity to the old-vine character, and the resulting wines - Vall Llach, Idus, and Embruix - have received high critical acclaim.
