Availability: In stock
Produced by the En Números Vermells winery, the personal project of winemaker Silvia Puig, En Números Vermells PX is a remarkably original and almost impossible to find Spanish white wine from DOQ Priorat.
This exciting white wine from Priorat is produced solely from Pedro Ximénez grapes sourced from a single vineyard owned by local wine grower Carlos Cubells, a good friend of Ms. Puig's. Located near Poboleda, at roughly 600 metres of altitude, the steep slope vineyard is composed of slate soils and planted with vines over 60 years old.
It is worth pointing out that, allthough one would hardly think of Pedro Ximénez as a typical Priorat grape, the variety has been grown in the region for quite some time.
Hnad-picked and selected, the grapes went through a very slow fermentation in French oak barrels, clay vessels and wooden vats under controlled temperature. Once the process was finished, the white wine En Números Vermells PX 2021 was aged on lees for 4 months in the fermentation diposits.
The production of the 2021 vintage is ridiculously low: less than 650 bottles.
Like most quality white wines, this varietal white wine aged on lees is best served at a temperature served at a temperature slightly higher than usual (10º-12ºC).
The white wine En Números Vermells PX is deep yellow with some golden reflections.
As original as the combination of the names 'Priorat' and 'Pedro Ximénez' might suggest, this white wine brings aromas of white flowers, ripe peaches and apricots, evolving into lime rind and herbs de Provence, with a dark mineral streak and some earthy notes.
This white wine of bodega En Números Vermells is bone dry, tangy and deeply mineral, with a racy acidity, exceptional freshness and a luscious mouthfeel. The combination of a tarry minerality and succulent white fruit is captivating. Very long finish with a citrusy and herbal note.
