Tasting notes Pedra de Guix

Sight Pedra de Guix is a white wine with hints of Mediterranean herbs like fennel, rosemary and bay leaves on the nose and mineral notes that are characteristic of Priorat wines. On the palate it is dry and fresh, reaffirming the mineral nuances accompanied by a subtle salinity. An elegant and complex wine with a great aging potential.
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 Yellow, almost straw colour with gold reflections. Bright. Dense tears on the glass. Nose Aromas of white fruit and citrus. Intense toasted notes, marked lactic notes and smooth spices. A very intense, mineral background. Taste Good and powerful attack, dense and rich on the palate. Ripe white fruit, very lively with a marked acidity. Noticeable yet well-integrated tannins and good persistence.
