Review

El Tossal de la Salut is the first single-variety Grenache wine made in the Conca de Barberà, an appellation where this grape variety had virtually disappeared until recently.

Made from grapes cultivated at an altitude of 700 metres in the Prades mountains separating the Priorat from the Conca de Barberà region, El Tossal de la Salut aims to reflect the typicity of the grapes from this area and faithfully express the landscape the vines grow in. According to Rofes, oenologist of the Scala Dei and Abadia de Poblet cellars, the 1000 bottles produced exemplify the artisanal method used by the Abadia de Poblet cellar — "a method which recovers processes used for centuries by the Cistercian monks from Burgundy who founded the Poblet monastery".

Whole bunches of grapes are fermented with native yeasts in concrete tanks, and then aged there for 14 months. The resulting wine is an exuberant Grenache with plenty of fruit; a spiced wine with a juicy palate and bright tannins. All in all, El Tossal de la Salut is an excellent gastronomic partner. This wine is produced in a traditional handcrafted way faithfully respecting old customs and the unique surroundings it is produced in.

Ein großartiges Garnatxa-Solo

Man muss nicht gleich an Häresie („Heretge“) denken, wenn Ricard Rofes, der Önologe des Klosterkellers „Abadia de Poblet“, wie auch des Luftlinie 20km entfernten Klosterkellers „Scala Dei“, mit seinem „El Tossal de la Salut 2015“ den ersten sortenreinen roten Garnatxa aus der „D.O. Conca de Barberà“ auf 1333 Flaschen zieht. Er stellt damit lediglich den von den Cava-Großkellereien beeinflussten regionalen Rebsorten-Spiegel wieder vom Kopf auf die Füße. Und gibt damit eine Richtung vor, die hoffen lässt. Schon dieser erste Jahrgang ist ein Lichtblick! Er erinnert an Rofes Spitzen-Garnatxas von „Scala Dei“, und an die des benachbarten Montsant und Priorat. Kein Wunder: Vergleichbare Bodenverhältnisse (Schiefer und roter Lehm), vergleichbar alter Garnatxa-Rebbestand (70-80 Jahre), dieselbe Kellerarbeit. Im Glas begeistert der „El Tossal“ wie eine wunderbar durchkomponierte, schwebend-leicht vorgetragene Etüde. Der Duft eine fließende Melodie aus wilden Beeren und Bergblumen; im Mund sortentypisch, geschmeidig, saftig, fruchtig, pfeffrig, und unendlich lang. Ein großartiges Garnatxa-Solo.

Vins Abadia de Poblet

Vins Abadia de Poblet

Vins Abadía de Poblet was born out of the interest of the Cistercian Community to resume the Cistercian winemaking tradition, which dates back to the 11th century in Burgundy and was always associated with the Pinot Noir grape variety. In 1989 the Codorníu Group decided to join this project, which began with the planting of vineyards on the 9 hectares that are within the walled area of the Poblet Monastery. At the same time, a deep rehabilitation of the building begins, whic...
