The Clar del Bosc is a wine from the stable of the Juan Gil family, so quality is assured and comes from the heart of the inhospitable Priorat, made from 50% Garnacha, 35% Cariñena, 10% Syrah & 5% Cab.Sauvignon. After manual picking, the wine is aged for 12 months in oak barrels and then bottle matured for another 6 months.

The (old) vineyards are planted on slopes, planted on terraces with a terroir made of blue slate and quartz soils known as licorella, a unique soil of the area, between pine and olive trees. This soil structure promotes drainage and forces the vine roots to grow deep into the soil to extract water. This gives the special minerality to beautiful priorat wines such as the Blue Gray and this Clar del Bosc. The vines have very low yields. The hand-picked grapes, collected in 16kg baskets, were fermented separately in small stainless steel open barrels of 15 & 30 hl with 1-2 daily pump-overs, and part in 500L French oak barrels with 2 daily punch-downs . Each variety was matured separately in French oak barrels with a capacity of 600, 300 and 225 liters for 12 months and finally blended by the winemaker

The wine has notes of licorice and fennel, typical of this area, giving it a very Mediterranean profile, showing us perfect concentration, ripeness, balance and acidity. The polished finish is long and persistent with elegant tannins. A maximum of 7,000 bottles of this beautiful Priorat are produced. It is also worth mentioning that both the front and back labels are made of fabric instead of paper.

This is an ideal wine to enjoy on its own, but is also a perfect accompaniment to (salty/blue-veined) cheeses, pasta dishes, spicy sausage dishes, grilled steaks, roast chicken, roast duck, stewed beef and winter stews.
