Tosalet D.O.Ca. Priorat; a region known world wine for excellent quality wines, it is the only other Spanish region officially classified as Denomination de Origen de Calidad. Our selected grapes, Garnacha-Carignan-Cabernet Sauvignan, cluster and dangle like royal jewels on vines stretching across steep llicorella soiled hillsides in this regal land. Llicorella soils unique to this area give a specific minerality to the wine, sets this region apart from others. Tosalet is a trend-setting wine because we have gone against tradition, refusing to age the wine - this is a true representation of the delicious fruit and minerality from Priorat.

Winemaking

The grapes were handpicked at the optimum stage of ripeness during the first 15 days October from old low yielding bush vines. Grapes selected on selection table before being gently de-stemmed and transferred by conveyor belt into stainless steel tanks of 20.000 kilos. Temperature controlled fermentation at 26-28ºC with daily manual pump over for 21 days. Pressed and racked into stainless steel tanks where the wine underwent malolactic fermentation. Clarified and filtered before bottling.

Tasting notes

Clear deep dark purple colour. Pure and very intense aromas reminiscent of red berry fruit such as cranberries, red cherries and raspberries combined with mineral notes of flint and hints of eucalyptus. The palate is dry, full bodied with rich concentrated juicy fruit, firm but ripe tannins and a refreshing acidity making this a great food wine that will age very well for 4-6 years.
