This wine is produced by Vinícola del Priorat, a union of 4 local co-operatives which was established in 1991 with the objective of modernising wine making faclities as many of the local co-operatives were still using obsolete facilities that were set up between 1917 and 1929. At present, Vinícola del Priorat includes the local co-operatives of Gratallops, El Lloar, La Vilella Alta and La Vilella Baixa. It has 125 wine-growing members who cultivate 310 vineyards covering a total area of 205 hectares and with an output of 450,000 kg. of grapes. Due to the hilly terrain of Priorat, with vineyards on slopes of up to 30 degrees, llicorella soil (a poor, rocky, friable mixture of schist and quartzite) and the advanced age of the vines (the average is around 60 years), yields are very low – approximately a kilo of grapes per vine. Harvest is by hand, as are all other vineyard operations - mechanisation is impossible on these steep terraces.

Produced from a blend of Grenache and Shiraz. Spectacular colour. Opaque black purple colour with black purple hue, clinging firmly to the glass. Top note of dark chocolate and spice which leaps out of the glass. Mouth filling palate, with flavours of spice, black pepper, plum, black cherries and liquorice. Fine dryish, but balanced tannins. Very long aftertaste of spice, black cherry and black pepper.
