Perinet 2017

Perinet 2017

Perinet, our signature wine, is a pure expression of a classic Priorat wine, respecting the traditional grapes and showcasing this terroir’s best-kept secret. This blend represents our estate vineyard, Mas del Xes, which surrounds the winery. This location showcases the essence of the most adapted and widely planted grapes in the area: Garnatxa, Carinyena, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah. With the influence of the unique llicorella soils throughout the region these grapes, together, perform a full-scale symphony of this unique Mediterranean landscape.

Production Notes
Clusters were hand-sorted in the winery, in addition to a vineyard sorting, gently destemmed and crushed directly to small stainless open-top tanks and big barrels for fermentation. Jack-stems were removed by hand. Most lots were cold soaked for two days. Fermentations were started slowly, with punch downs by hand occurring one to two times a day; macerations lasted from 10 to 21 days, depending on the individual lot. At the completion of maceration, free run wines were transferred to barrel. The caps were gently pressed using a stainless basket press and then settled for up to 2 days before being transferred to barrel. The wines were aged in 90% new French oak for 15 months before being bottled without either fining or filtration. Blend: Garnatxa 33%, Syrah 25%, Carinyena 25%, Cabernet Sauvignon 16%
Tasting Notes
This blend shows a deep purple black color, with beautiful aromas of cherry and plums with some hints of tobacco, dry leafs and violets, as well as the unique mineral notes derived from the licorella slate of our vineyards in the northern Priorat. The palate is fresh, full and rich, with a silky texture balanced with ripen tannins.
