Partida Pedrer 2014
Grape variety: Garnatxa (Grenache)
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!
From Sara and Rene: "This Garnatxa Negra (Red Grenache) wine comes from a newly planted north-facing vineyard. It is a natural wine, without any kind of additives. Pure.
Pedrer reflects the freshness of the shady side of the mountain and the heat of the morning sun. It is made partly with whole berries, uncrushed, which offer this wine a true sensation of pure fruit and the rest of the grapes are crushed and go through a long skin soak period. This adds depth which is very typical of most Priorat wines. By ageing in clay pots, we keep the purity of this wine."
This is relative a young wine but still can keep for many years.
