Notes from the producer:

"The winery of Costers del Priorat is in the heart of Les Solanes in El Molar. Built on the site of a Carthusian farmhouse from the end of the 15th century, takes advantage of its location and has integrated some of the old underground constructions blending in perfectly with its surroundings.

This wine concentrates the world of colours and aromatic sensations that we find when walking along any path in Priorat. Pissarres is the true mirror of our region. Dark red, depth, the energy and wisdom of the selected ‘costers’. The palate is complex. It has ripe fruit, memories of the Mediterranean brushwood and a sharp, cold note which is the characteristic mark of the llicorella slate soils’ extreme minerality."

Winemaking
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. Part of the barrels are new, some are two years old. The malolactic fermentation occurs spontaneously in the barrels.
