Elaboration (vinification)

With a very limited production of about 1,000 bottles, this red wine exemplifies the artesanal method of the Abadia de Poblet cellar. A method that recovers the processes that for centuries the monks of the Cistercian Order from Burgundy used. The maximum varietal and terroir expressiveness is sought with Tossal de la Salut. The grapes of Tossal de la Salut were harvested on October 18th, 2015, were squeezed and covered in a cement tank where the fermentation took place with 100% of the scrap. Fermented with natural or autochthonous yeasts, this wine was in contact with the skins for 23 days, alternating "pissage" and pumping over according to daily tasting.

Vineyard (viticulture)
The wine comes from El Tossal de la Salut vineyard, located next to the hill of this name. It is located in the Prades Mountains, which separate Priorat from Conca de Barberà. It is a vineyard oriented to the North, located at 700 meters of altitude, in which the soil presents slate mixed with red clay. The vintage 2015 was an unusual vintage, especially until just before the harvest began. We came from one of those very promising vintages, good winter, rainy spring (without excess) but when the summer arrived it was very warm, a fact that caused maturation to advance, especially in the low areas. The rains (although scarce) of mid-August helped the vineyards of height, but not so much to those of the valleys, where due to their advanced stage of maturation, it was necessary to choose meticulously the grape to enter which was only optimal.
