Els Escurçons 2019
Monovarietal de Garnacha que debe su nombre a la finca de la que provienen sus uvas, situada en una montaña rodeada de encinas que da a este vino unos aromas que recuerdan a las flores de esta región tan especial. Durante la vinificación se utilizan tinajas de terracota para preservar los aromas más sutiles y frescos de la variedad.

Opinión de los críticos
The 2019 Els Escurçons comes from a 20-year-old vineyard, a massal selection of old Garnacha from the village of Porrera on south- and southwest-facing terraces of ferruginous decomposed llicorella slate. In June 2015, 30 hectares of forest around the vineyard burned down, and 10% of the vines died. The vineyard expression has been coming back since 2016, but they feel it has changed, as the vegetation around it has disappeared. The first two vintages after the fire showed anger and stress, and in 2018, they noticed a change that seems to continue in 2019. But then 2019 was very unusual, incredibly concentrated but only 13.5% alcohol and surprisingly tannic. This is a wine that matures in glass demijohn and ceramic jars. Another unusual wine from an unusual harvest here. 3,800 bottles produced. - Luis Gutiérrez.
Another delicate, fresh wine from the warm 2019 vintage, this hailing from a young vineyard at high elevation, that was badly damaged by fire during the 2015 harvest. Sun-kissed and concentrated, this is all about brambly fruits, pepper and warm earth; a savoury style of Garnacha that reflects Porrera well. Firm and still very young, but I expect this to blossom in the years to come. 2024-2034
