Costers Del Priorat, Pissarres 2015

Descriptions:

60% Garnacha Tinta and 40% Samsó (Carignan or Mazuelo). This wine concentrates the colours and aromatic sensations you find walking along any path in Priorat. Pissarres is the true mirror of the region. Dark, deep red. The palate is complex. It has ripe fruit, influences of the Mediterranean brushwood and a sharp, cold note, which is the characteristic mark of the llicorella slate soils’ extreme minerality. The wine is made in stainless steel tanks of 3,000 and 5,000 litres, and a small part in cement vats. The varieties are vinified separately to get the maximum expression of each grape. The aging is carried out for 12 months in French oak barrels of 225 and 500 litres. The malolactic fermentation occurs spontaneously within the barrels.

Romate Oloroso Old & Plus Sherry

Descriptions:

A limited amount of barrels hidden in the centre of Bodega Romate’s cellars holds the oldest wines. This Oloroso is over 30 years old and is made from soleras that are over 200 years old. These casks were set aside by the owner’s ancestors for the family’s private consumption.

Nose Notes: Deep and vividly fragrant. Lots of juicy plums, dates an dried figs. Chocolate bars with macadamia nuts and walnuts. Hints of exotic woods and polished furniture, well integrated with some toast and a soft veil of smoke. Big leathery notes as well.

Mouth Notes: Intense, but not a heavy weight. Bright and crisp, with some glycerine which makes it seem a little rounder. Some citrus. Toffee and chocolate. Technically dry of course, but no astringent whatsoever. All quite balanced. It’s acidic, salty and nutty, but nothing in excess. Long, dry, nutty finish with a light bitter edge.
