Bodegas Pinord Priorat 7 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

Bodegas Pinord is a family business which was founded 150 years ago. The Penedés district is situated between Barcelona and Tarragona, with the mountains of Montserrat marking the border in the north and the Mediterranean in the South. The soil is varied, contrasting from chalky clay to sandstone with distinct differences in depth so that the vines may take root. The mild Mediterranean climate is ideal for growing vines, indeed there is evidence that the Romans planted vineyards here. The slightly wetter weather in the valleys means that there is non need for irrigation.

In 1942, José María Tetas set up the current winery in Vilafranca del Penedès, just four kilometres from the original estate. Having inherited the family methods and traditions, it has gradually grown until it has now become one of the most highly reputed wineries in the region and the whole country. At the present time, PINORD’s production facilities have an output capacity of over five million bottles per year. Nevertheless, traditional family standards are maintained and care is taken to avoid over production, something that generally results in a loss of quality. Two enologists and a laboratory with the most up-to-date analytical and quality control equipment ensure that the long-standing family tradition continues to be compatible with today’s most demanding quality, production and health controls demonstrating that traditional methods are not necessarily at variance with the implementation of the most rigorous standards. The early wines soon began to win a name and prestige for themselves as a result of their high quality. Since then, generation after generation, year after year, the family’s vineyards have continued to expand, the local varieties have considerably improved and the family name has become inseparably linked to the wine of El Penedès. The Bodegas Pinord vineyards are situated just a few miles from Vilafranca. We are proud to be able to say that they are grouped round the Muntanyans Hermitage standing on a hill from which you can see a large part of El Penedès. Read less

The best wine I've had all year. A big, bold, earthy, oakey Priorat. A sensation on the nose with earth and chocolate notes coming through. Very dense fruit on the palate with a wonderful balance of minerality and oak with a long, long, lingering finish. Get it.

    I HAD THIS WINE ON NEW YEARS EVE NEAR MIAMI AT A SPANISH PLACE. IT WAS FABULOUS, BUT HARD TO FIND THRU DISTRIBUTION. THIS IS ONE OF THE BEST WINES (FOR MY TASTE) THAT I HAVE EVER HAD, AND THE FIRST PRIORAT. PRIORAT WINES ARE KNOWN FOR A MINERAL (NICKLE HINT) IN THE FINISH, BUT WE DID NOT SENSE THAT. THE WINE IS VERY DARK, AND WILL STAIN A GLASS IS YOU LEAVE IT OVER NIGHT.

    GOLD MEDAL - Decanter World Wine Awards The story of Bodegas Pinord started more than 150 years ago, when the Tetas family began to make wines on their estate in Penedes. They have now extended their family expertise to the heartland of Priorat, renowned for producing bespoke cult wines. Their Mas Blanc estate lies on steep slately slopes, where the grapes are organically grown and hand harvesting is obligatory. A variety of different grapes are grown here, all benefiting from the night and day temperature variances which allows them to achieve great complexity. The winery is kitted out with all of the newest vinification equipment along with 250 new French, American and Bulgarian oak barriques. Grapes : 50% Garnacha, 20% Syrah, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon Region : Spain / Priorat Maker : José Maria Tetas Notes : Dark ruby red , dense blackfruit and chocolate on the nose, full bodied, well balanced and very silky with a long rich finish. Serve : At room temperature with red meat, roasts or cheese. ABV : 14.5% Suitable for Vegetarians

    Dark ruby red, dense blackfruit and chocolate carried through to the full bodied palate which is rich and very silky with a long, smooth finish.
