Product Description
Produced by Celler Vall Llach, a household name in Priorat, Vall Llach Porrera Vi de Vila is an impressive Spanish red wine made from of old-vines Carignan (70%) and Grenache (30%).
The grapes are sourced from several vineyards, some of which are over 100 years old, situated in the vicinity of Porrera. The wine bears the Vi de Vila (Village Wine) seal to attest that fact.

Hand-picked and meticulosly selected, each variety was separately vinified. First, they were destemmed before being fermented in 300 and 500-litre oak barrels, with gentle  pump-overs and punch-downs performed daily. After that, this red wine from Priorat went through a 12-day post fermentation maceration, followed by a gentle pressing.

Then the wine was transferred into stainless steel tanks, where it completed malolactic fermentation. After that, the Carignan went into new 300-litre French oak barrels and 2nd year vats, and the Grenache went into new and 2nd year 2,000-litre oak vats. Both were aged for a period of 14 months, during which period they were racked once.

Finally, Vall Llach Porrera Vi de Vila 2021 was blended and bottled.

It is essential to decant this Crianza red wine for a substantial period of time before drinking.

Additional Information
Additional Information

The red wine Vall Llach Porrera Vi de Vila is deep purple with some ruby and indigo reflections.


Despite its youth, this is already an impressive blend of Carignan and Grenache. Lively black currant and black cherries, with a speck of tar, leather, violets and spices, underscored by a deep mineral background.


This wine from Celler Vall Llach is not as massive as in previous vintages, and it certainly benefits from the restraint exercised by the winemaker. Textured and complex, with amazing natural concentration, a tangy acidity sustaining many layers of flavour and a vibrant mineral feel which goes on for a very long time.

Our personal opinion

Despite it needs some years to fully come together, Vall Llach Porrera Vi de Vila 2021 already shows outstanding qualities.
