Characteristics of Cal Pla Blanc

Cal Pla Blanc is a red wine from Priorat produced by Celler Cal Pla. It is a blend of Macabeo (40%), Garnacha Blanca (30%) and Moscatell (30%).

The grapes are harvested by hand during the last week of September. Strains are 15 years old and are oriented south-west.

The vines grow on slate soils at an altitude of 300 metres above sea level. The average production is 1.5 kilos per vine.

Once in the winery, Cal Pla Blanc is macerated with the skins. Subsequently it undergoes a fermenting it in a temperature controlled deposit.

Cal Pla Blanc is finally aged on its lees in new French oak barrels -80% of them-and American oak- the remaining 20% - of 225 and 300 litres. It remains here for 5 months.

Celler Cal Pla
has a long history since it was founded in 1814. They are now seven generations of the Pla family who have dedicated themselves to the vineyard and winemaking in the small town of Porrera.

Tasting notes Cal Pla Blanc

The Priorat region was marked by heavy drought and heat. Following an autumn and winter with normal temperatures and rainfall, spring began with an abnormal drought and high temperatures. Flowering was successful, occurring before the expected date, but the rains didn’t come. During the summer the high temperatures continued, and the lack of rainfall resulted in the earliest harvest in history. In general, the wines of this vintage are noted for their concentration, being less pronounced in wines produced with local varieties such as Grenache or Cariñena. Perfect for enjoying young, and with a medium aging capacity.
The vintage began in autumn in the best possible way, with good rainfalls that would fill the water reserves for optimal growth development. Winter was characterised by low temperatures and even snow covered some areas of Priorat. March started wet and cold, which delayed the budding of the vines. In mid-May, flowering was encouraged and was followed by a somewhat unstable June with several rainfalls.
A year with a very good balance. This vintage was characterised by the absence of water stress for the plants. Winter and spring were favourable in terms of rainfall and temperatures were slightly higher than usual. At the time of budding, there was no rain, so the vines developed in a suitable manner. The flowering took place in a clean way and the Grenache vines settled in an excellent way. Summer was characterised by cool and dry days, but also humid, which led to good photosynthesis and growth of the plants. During the end of the summer, before the harvest, there was still some humidity, which preserved the freshness of the soil and, consequently, achieving a gradual ripening of the grapes, perfect to retain the aromas and the good acidity. The negative factor was the rain during the harvest days. In short, the vintage has been somewhat atypical for Priorat, with wines that are less voluminous than in a normal year in the area, but with a good acidity that is reflected in the wines and that will keep them optimal for many years.
A year that started with some problems with the flowering but ended up being very good. Winter was colder and rainier than usual. Spring continued with days of low temperatures and a lot of water that delayed flowering and the consequent setting problems until the end of March, affected production. After a complicated year, when the summer began, the rains stopped and the temperatures rose, providing excellent ripening due to optimal rainfall during the year. The year has therefore been one of the best in recent years. Fluidity, acidity and concentration augur for a long life of the wines of this vintage.
Sight Clean yellow with green and metallic hues. Nose It is fresh and clean. Fruity aromas, citrus notes and sweet. Shades of pastry. Taste It is dense, large and round. Long and good acidity. Balanced and fruity touches.

Imágenes y situación D.O.Q. Priorat

Cal Pla is immersed in a process of controlled unification without losing the philosophy of a small boutique winery that produces high-quality wines and with a marked personality from its strategic location in Priorat. For eight generations, Cal Pla has made bulk wine from the family winery until in 1996, Joan Sangenís, the youngest one of the saga and with oenology studies, decided to introduce bottling and the most up-to-date oenology elements to produce renewed and labelled wines. Wines that transmitted, at the same time, the strength of the tradition of a family that has been dedicated to winemaking for more than two centuries.
