The Wine Gurus Maquinon 2015

Winemakers, sommeliers, designers and other wine profesisonals, the ones we call “The Wine Gurus” bring different perspectives to this project, but share a singular obsession: to create authentic wines that reflect the nine original terroirs owned by the estate across the country.

The power of Priorat in a wine and a grape, the Garnacha negre, talks about this land, and it is clearly defined by its terroir: the slate (llicorella). Coming from young vineyards of 10 years old, located on different terraces of soils poor in organic matter, we find the best biodynamic vineyard.

The grapes are hand harvested during the third week of September, in boxes of 15 kilos to allow the grapes to enter to the winery in the best condition. The selection table at the entrance of the winery ensures maximum quality, and after a delicate de-stemming, the grapes enter the stainless steel tanks where fermentation takes place at a controlled temperature of 24ºC.

Aging is in French oak barrels for three months. The first two months malolactic fermentation takes place.

It has a rich cherry red color. The intense nose is balanced between the ripe fruit of the Garnacha and the contribution of the barrel, with smoked and spiced notes. In the mouth it’s friendly, enveloping, with a sense of roundness and volume with a finish marked by ripe fruit.
