- Javier Buil is the driving force behind a new business that intends to not so much revolutionise the Priorat wine industry but certainly to bring back some commercial reality. His Giné Giné Priorat has all the spice, mineral and fruit that one expects from the region but it also has youth, vibrancy and clean bright fruit that make this such an appealing style. This is a truly innovative, forward thinking producer with the drive and passion to bring Priorat to the wider market. The classic soils of Priorat - the slate, shale and liquorella - are poor soils for vigour but excellent for restricting yield and production of powerful, characterful wines. Couple to this, the steepness of some of the slopes has to be seen to be believed - some even need ladders to climb and harvest from them. Vines literally cling to the side of the hills! As a result, Priorat wines have the reputation of being expensive, almost unnaproachable for the regular consumer. However, Javier Buil has a vision of producing wines at the top end but also wines that are not only more approachable when young but also affordable for the consumer. To this effect, he is opening a major new winery close to the famed L'Ermita of Alvaros Palacios fame and his new vineyards are terraced in order to make them more workable.
A juicy, succulent style of Priorat with well balanced strawberry and violet scented fruit followed by a mid weight palate of supple, berry fruit.

- Food match:
This wine packs quite a punch - pair it with something equally powerful. A concentrated, slow cooked oxtail stew would do the job!
