Characteristics of Scala Dei Pla Dels Àngels

Scala Dei Pla dels Àngels is a rosé wine from D.O.Q. Priorat produced by Celler Scala Dei, in the municipality of La Morera del Montsant (Tarragona).

 

Celler Scala Dei is a historic wine of Priorat. In 1878, the first bottles of Priorat wine left their facilities to go to the Universal Exhibition in Paris. Almost a century later, in 1973, Scala Dei went from bulk wine commercialisation to the production of bottled wines.

Celler Scala Dei works with 90 hectares of their own vineyards, distributed in 40 different locations. All these plots are located between 400 and 800 metres of altitude, on different kinds of soils. Slate, clay and calcareous soils, with all the possible orientations thanks to the unique terrain of the region.

 

Scala Dei Pla dels Àngels is a rosé wine made from Black Grenache from young and old vines located in the higher areas of Scala Dei. They are planted on clayey soils that preserve the acidity, and therefore, the freshness, of the grape during its harvest.

To preserve the aromatic features of the Grenache, they refrigerate the grapes when they arrive at the winery (up to 2ºC). They separate the pulp from the seeds, and after 3 hours of maceration with the skins, they start the saignée of the deposit to achieve this pale, attractive colour. After this, the fermentation takes place as they do for white wines. When the fermentation ends, it rests for around 4 moths in deposits, until it is bottled.

 

Scala Dei Pla dels Àngels is a fresh, easy to drink and balanced wines. Very fragrant on the nose, crunchy red fruit with aniseed-like notes. In the mouth, in is intense and refreshing.

Tasting notes Scala Dei Pla Dels Àngels

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.
We present the new 2016 vintage, characterised by the wettest winterin the last five years. Not only did it rain in winter, but there was also wet weather up until summer arrived, especially inMarch and April. In summer everything changed, and it was one of the driest inhistory, with only 28 litres being recorded between July and October.If we compare the temperatures in 2012 and 2016, the 2016 crophad to endure a much colder winter than in 2012, which turned outto be positive, since the frost cleared the fields ofvine parasites. During the spring, lower temperaturesthan in 2012 were also recorded.Due to all these climatic conditions there was a delay insprouting, which began on March 28th, and which led to a delayin flowering of between three and four weeks.Once the summer arrived, the Priorat got all the luck, sincethe rains disappeared, while in the rest of Europethey were incessant. It was something that nobody expected considering thewinter we’d had. Taking into account the delay insprouting, the harvest started around mid-October on some ofthe estates.Obtaining fresh wines with an extraordinary acidity is dueto this long duration of the grape in the strain that has so characterisedthis vintage.
