Coster de l’Ermita 2018
The elegance of complexity.
The sun that feeds it in the form of liquorella is especially unique, giving it a concentration of aromas that is a true treasure.
It is a complex, elegant wine, a pleasant wine, but with character. It expresses the minerality of the terroir via the backwash with shades of humid earth and undergrowth. It is so pleasant that it is expressed through the perfect balance with the fruit.

The Somelier's Note
Dark garnet with lilac and burgundy hues.
In the nose initially, we find young wood, which as it aerates become more complex aromas, liquorice, spices.
Then it gives way to very ripe fruit, red fruit compote and plum.
Very wide tertiary aromatic range. Pleasant entry, but with character.
It expresses the minerality of the soil via retronasal with shades of wet soil and undergrowth. Friendly tannin, which is expressed in its perfect balance with the fruit. The maximum expression of the variety in the Priorat.
