PARTIDA BELLVISOS, 2013
Grape variety: Blend with Carignan and Garnatxa Peluda (Hairy Garnacha)
First time in Hong Kong! only 6 bottles available.
This wine (together with the other three wines) is the Priorat project run by Sara and Rene. Rene bought a small abandoned vineyard located in Gratallops in 2001. The vineyard was abandoned for 40 years because it is so steep that it made it very hard to work on the vine. However, this is the reason to preserve the old vine. Rene works so hard with Sara to make the vine finally can produce grape and start making wine. The result is phenomenal!
"... This has a lot of character, great acidity, and fine minerality, with a clean, very focused finish. It's still young but approachable and should develop nicely in a bottle. Truly phenomenal. 2,000 bottles and some magnums produced.." RP96
