Wines

In the North of the region, the boundary between the two appellations (Priorat and Montsant; La Morera and Cornudella) is a straight line without an apparent logic. The Mas de l’Abella site is one of the few cases that encompasses the two appellations. Both terroirs are mixed together. The llicorella – scarce in the area – is no longer a valid argument to draw the border as it does in the rest of the geographic region.

It is NORDELSUD (North of the South), with altitudes from 500m to nearly 800m (2700ft). Where it rains more than twice than in traditional areas and temperature can show differences of over 5ºC. Where the vegetation has another vigor and colors, where labor happens a bit later than usual, where minerality of the wines is far from the rest and comes from old fossil soils.

Gotes wines show the most essential identity marks of the region’s wines in terms of subtleness.

Each year GP advances a bit more in favor of naturalness, playing with the limits of balance, without giving up any of the Priorat identities -licorice, balsamic- contained in weighted notes and tones. Soft tannins.…
