Cartoixa Formiga de Gallena Priorat 2014 750ml

Religion meets science with explosive results in the outstanding wines of Clos Galena. This estate was recently rated, by Stateside wine guru Robert Parker, in the top 10% of the best Spanish wines currently been made.

During the 15th Century visionary Carthusian monks first planted vines in this particular area of the Priorat. Now, man of Science, Miguel Pérez Gerrada is taking quality winemaking here to extraordinary new heights with scrupulously modern winemaking know-how. He recently packed-up his daytime job as university science lecturer to devote full attention to his life’s work - to produce some of the best, individually crafted, wines in Priorat, if not Spain. The estate’s award winning wines are made exclusively from their eleven hectare El Molar vineyard which is located in a remote part of the Priorat D.O.C.  Yields are purposefully kept to an absolute minimum to truly express the unique power and flavour that can be found in exemplary wines from this area.
