The Details

In a Nutshell

Powerful, juicy, smooth, luscious. Enough said.

Tasting Notes

A true expression of the Priorat terroir, powerful and seductive with blueberry fruit on the nose and the classic flinty mineral character of the wines from this region. Juicy and fruit driven with tender fruit tannins, plenty of acidity, smooth and luscious on the palate with grippy texture, hints of herbs and spices and a long fleshy berry and black cherry finish.

Production Notes

The fruit is sourced from various parts of the Poboleda district of Priorat, where the native Garnatxa and Carignano varieties thrive in the unique microclimate and Licorella slate slopes. Small amounts of Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah add complexity to the final blend. Long, warm, dry days and cool nights give perfect phenolic ripeness and good levels of natural acidity to balance the powerful character of the fruit. The average age of the vines is 20 years and they are farmed organically although they are not certified.

The L‘Expressio vines were allowed to be a bit more vigorous in order to allow the fruit to ripen slowly and retain freshness. A rigorous selection of fruit took place in the vineyard, followed by a long cool maceration to extract the fine tannins. 30% of the wine was aged for a short period in oak, in order to round the texture rather than add oak flavours, the rest remaining in stainless steel for a few months before bottling.
