2021 Vall Llach “Embruix” Priorat, Catalonia, Spain
There are 4 units left in stock.
ABOUT THIS WINE
Located in the tiny hillside village of Porrera, Celler Vall Llach's "Embruix," meaning 'bewitching' in Catalan, is exactly that - incredible concentration with the capacity to age, but ready to drink now. A blend of old vine Garnacha and Cariñena, as well as younger plantings of Bordeaux varieties, this wine embodies the paradox of Priorat.
ABOUT THIS PRODUCER
Situated in one of the D.O.Q. Priorat’s oldest towns, Porrera, the relatively “young” vines that make up this wine are located on steep slopes comprised entirely of slate, known locally as llicorella. Due to the steep slopes’ inability to retain water and the dry, fiery climate, even the clusters that come from Vall Llach’s youngest vineyards are small and dense, providing the Embruix with its characteristic “bewitching” quality.
