Scala Dei Garnatxa, Priorat

Scala Dei Garnatxa, Priorat

A fresh aroma of ripe red berries with underlying mineral hints, typical of wines from the region's llicorella terroir. Bilberry and redcurrant flavours on a balanced palate that shows freshness alongside savoury notes and weight. The Garnacha grapes are left to ferment with the natural vineyard yeasts in small open tanks; after the ferment, the wines are tried prior to deciding how long to extend the skin contact before pressing; the wine is unoaked. The Scala Dei winery, latin for 'ladder of God', was established in the 12th century by Carthusian monks.
