2014 La Conreria d'Scala Dei

Black Slate - Garnacha



The joint venture between Jordi Vidal and US importer Eric Solomon also produced a custom red, which is the 2014 Black Slate Scala Dei. It is a blend of 90% Garnacha with 8% Cabernet Sauvignon and a 2% pinch of Cariñena. The grapes were harvested at different times and fermented separately in stainless steel and oak vats. The Garnacha matured in 5,000-liter oak vats and the rest in barrique for some 18 months. It's floral and portrays a chalky soil character from the higher altitude parts of the hamlet of Scala Dei, a feature that makes the wines very distinct. The color is a bright, light ruby, and the nose shows that same brightness. There is very good balance and elegance, with subtle minerality. 10,800 bottles were filled in April 2016.
