Costers del Priorat Pissarres 2015
|Region||Spain, Catalonia, Priorato|
|Brand||Costers del Priorat|
The 2015 Pissarres is a blend of 65% Cariñena with 35% Garnacha from slope vineyards and is named after the slate soils where the grapes grow. It fermented in concrete vats with indigenous yeasts and matured in oak vats for 12 months. It feels serious and balanced, with a commercial mix of ripe fruit and spicy oak aromas. The palate is medium-bodied, with some dusty tannins and less concentration than I expected, which makes it easy to drink. 40,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in February 2017.
