Description

The inspiration for Black Slate is a Burgundian concept of village nomenclature, applied to Priorat. Grapes are sourced from vineyards situated close to the village of Escaladei, planted on the famed licorella soils at high altitudes. This is a classic and elegant expression of Priorat, with aromas of black cherries and bramble fruit and a fresh and focused palate.

With indigenous yeasts, in concrete tanks. Aged for 20 months in French and American oak barrels

Founded in 1997 by three friends-- a priest, a teacher and a winemaker-- this bodega is named after the 12th century Cartoixa d'Escaladei, a Carthusian Monastery now in ruins located in the nearby village of Scala Dei-- which translates as the Ladder of God. The very talented and energetic Jordi Vila is the winemaker and the driving force behind the project. He fell in love with Priorat while studying viticulture and oenology in nearby Falset and has the utmost respect for the region and its rich winemaking history. They own and lease about 25 ha, the majority of them over 30 years old with some vineyards up to 80 years old.
