2017 Vall Llach Mas de la Rosa
Celler Vall Llach’s flagship wine, one of very few Vi de Finca Qualificadas that has been certified in Spain, is a single-vineyard wine of great quantified quality. The wine is made solely from fruit that clings to one incredibly rocky hillside outside of Porrera, Priorat, in a beautiful setting that has earned the wine its poetic name of: Mas de la Rosa or Rose’s Farmhouse.
Mas de la Rosa is a unique vineyard site that has an unforgiving south-facing orientation to the sun, is made up of 80° slopes, and consists of only slate rock. As irrigation is banned in Priorat, the old vines owned by Celler Vall Llach are forced to dig deep in search of water, leading to an incredibly low production of 300 grams/vine. Thus, it takes seven vines to make one bottle of this inimitable wine.
