Containing aromas of warm berry pie, marzipan and Mediterranean herbs, this wine is rich and expressive in the mouth, with great structure and silky tannins. Albert Costa characterized the 2014 vintage as producing wines with “aromatic intensity, a soft entry into the mouth and with noble minerality.” The year began well, with the Porrera region receiving enough rain in spring to endure a hot and dry summer. The Vall Llach team began harvest on September 11th, in line with previous years, beginning with the white grapes and ending with their oldest and highest-elevation red grape vines. The red varieties began verasion in “a very healthy fashion,” and while a week of solid rain fell between the harvest of the white and red varieties, thankfully another spell of cool, dry air hit Priorat in mid-October, allowing the Vall Llach team to harvest healthy old-vine Cariñena & Garnacha clusters during the last week of October. Considered to be “a very fresh year” that produced markedly lively red Priorat wines, the 2014 Porrera Vi de Vila may be enjoyed now and will age well in bottle.
