“The one white from Clos Pissarra is the 2014 El Sol Blanc. It is pure Garnacha Blanca from 1.2 hectares of seven-year-old vines on clay and slate soils in Falset within the Montsant boundaries but without appellation of origin. One-third of the volume fermented in oak barriques and the rest in stainless steel with natural yeasts after pressing the whole bunches.
It matured for 15 months before bottling. It has a very flinty nose with some balsamic aromas of pollen and wax, with judicious oak, quite elegant. The palate shows very good balance, with power and good concentration, focused and defined flavors with a very tasty finish. The first vintage of white was in 2012. Very impressive. 2,568 bottles were filled in February 2016."
Emmanuel Kemiji is a Master Sommelier born in the US but raised in Madrid. He is also owner of Miura Vineyards in California. He started a small project in Priorat back in 2003 with some partners, including some chefs, some friends from his time at the Ritz Carlton, Sylvain Portay, Gerald Hirigoyen, Laurent Manrique and even some celebrities like Antonio Banderas.
The project has kept a low profile and I previously had only heard the name but had never actually tasted the wines. They produce wines from Montsant and Priorat, as they own vineyards in both appellations, but none is subject to the official appellation of origin.
While the original retail price for this wine was $45, we’re offering it for $20 less!
