New releases: Humilitat & Más Amor

Humilitat is the project of two friends sommeliers/vignerons Christophe Brunet and Franck Massard. We wanted to produce a wine from the Priorat featuring its best expression of Terroir, minerality and preserve its freshness which often is missing in this region. For this, we have selected vineyards on steep terrasses sheltered from the scorching sun yet sufficiently exposed to reach optimal maturity. The extraction are moderate and the wine nurtured partially in oak to confer stability and complexity yet above all, it is the freshly gathered berries that we wish to express in this particular wine.

Origin: 4 villages : El Molar, Gratallops, Porrera, Poboleda.

Age of the vines : Minimum 10 years old up to 100 years old

Winemaking:

The berries are collected in crates of 10kg capacity. Cool down to 6ºC to allow a cold maceration during several days. Fermentation takes place at 24ºC-26ºC and extraction method are applied by a combination of pumping over and punching-down.

Maturation:.
We used for this vintage 30% of oak of which 50% were new, french oak medium-toasted

Alcohol: 14,5%
Acidité totale 5,35g/l
Ph: 3,36

Grape varieties:
Garnacha 50%
Cariñena 50%

Tasting Notes :

A dark red ruby colour, glowing purple tinges. Savoury nose mingled with violet and freshly gathered red berries, supported by a light touch of wood. Finely textured tannins, a seamless structure, certain minerality (graphite) interacting with the vivid fruit and a long silky finish.

Más Amor, a very exciting rosé made of 100% garnacha grape. It is a bright, vivid rosé from D.O Terra Alta, located at the South of Priorat on the banks of the Ebro river. A really nice accompaniment to squids, parrilladas, tapas which may remind you the incredible endless nights in the heart of Barcelona. The label has been inspired by a graffiti in Barcelona seen on February 14th, Valentine’s day, what a coincidence!
