The very talented Jordi Vidal is the driving force behind one of the most unique properties in the Priorat region. A little over 100 years ago, white Garnatxa vines were planted on steep terraces in the hillside village of Scala Dei. Historically, the dry white wines of the Priorat have been heavily oxidized, often with high alcohol levels and a monolithic structure. Here, Jordi relies on extremely low yields and optimal harvesting times to keep good acidity in the wines before allowing them to ferment with natural yeasts in stainless steel tanks. The key to the white is allowing the white Grenache to rest on its fine lees during the cold winter, a technique that helps to impart a lovely
creaminess to the wine.
