About the Vineyard:
“Priorat is a wine-producing region that has long been contemplated for its preservation. Garnacha and Cariñena are the autochthonous and main varieties in this territory. The coasts are the vineyards planted on the slope of the mountain; which, added to the few precipitations and the low fertility of the liquorella, represent a performance altogether low; which results in a few grapes with concentrations of sugars, aromas and exceptional flavors.
D.O. Priorat wines have a high quality, they are elegant, easy to understand and enjoyable for everyone. The liquorella is a rock that defines the Priorat and its lifestyle. A little fertile land where, on many occasions, it only gives to the vines 40 cm of earth surface and stones crumbled to take root; giving prominence to the rock mother. A hard and porous rock that allows the water to filter quickly, preventing the plant from being supplied with ease, and triggering small grape production but with a high potential.”
About the Wine:
Soliterra comes from selected vineyards with a low production whose grapes are controlled by manually harvest, cluster by cluster, with a careful selection process. After harvest, the grapes were placed into tanks to perform alcoholic fermentation, remaining the grape juice and its skin in maceration for 24 hours, followed by malolactic fermentation with controlled temperature. This wine was aged in French oak barrels for 12 months. Finally, the wine was matured in the bottle. Soliterra is a wine of great finesse, typical of calcareous soils with little water retention.
Soliterra is a wine with a great personality, elaborated with a selection of grapes. This is a wine marked by potent aromas, a pleasant sensation of tannins and by a finish rich in nuances.
