En Números Vermells is Silvia Puig’s individual project, a young but very experienced winemaker with a formidable C.V. when it comes to winemaking and belonging to a new generation of winemakers in the Priorat. She makes small amounts of amazing wines in a very artisanal way. It started with producing just 1 single barrique in 2008 in a small garage converted for this in the village of Torroja, now she has her own place in the village of Gratallops where she produces the wines. All the fruit is carefully selected from different plots staggered in Costers (Catalán word meaning steeply slopes) and terraces with soils dominated by the characteristic “llicorella” or slate in different points of the Priorat.
Production: A new addition to the family of En Numeros Vermells, first vintage for Silvia's 100% Garnatxa Peluda, sourced from low-yielding, 60 years-old vines planted on a clay/slate soil in the slopes and terraces above the village of Bellmunt del Priorat. The production is inferior to 500 grams per plant and all the process is done manually from beginning to end. The wine has aged for 13 months, of which the first 3 months spends in amphora and the rest in new and second year oak barrel. The production is very limited, just 267 bottles.
Tasting Notes: Intense and rich with complex bouquet, intense aromas of cherry fruit with a sweet aromatic herbal touch, juicy, fig notes, aromas reminiscent of honey and caramel toffe. On the palate is all silkiness, very delicate and harmonious, great balance of power, firm with fresh structure. A wine with heart.
Note: With a good structure to age, it will improve in cellar during the next 10/12 years
