96 Pts Decanter
Wonderfully exhilarating Garnacha from the fringes of Priorat. It has shimmering blackcurrant & apple flesh fruit, mouthwatering acidity & a slap of herbs, & yet you can still taste the heat in the grapes.
Ideal drinking window: 2018-2025
"Acustic (Catalan for 'acoustic'), based in the town of Marca, is housed in a 200-year-old cellar. All the grapes are hand-harvested and pressed in an old oak basket press before racking by gravity into tank and then barrel below for their various elevages. The labels for the entry-levels evoke both guitar and cello -- the renowned Bach interpreter Pablo Casals having been born in proprietor Albert Jane's nearby hometown of El Vendrell. In short, as the name implies, this project is a quest for 'unplugged' wine.
Acustic espouses a minimalist philosophy of respect for old vines, indigenous varieties, manual labor, and sensitive cellar handling. The core holdings are 35- to 80-year-old bush vines of Garnatxa and Carignan (with a particular emphasis on Carignan -- also known locally as Samso or Carinyena) sprinkled with Garnatxa Blanca, Macabeu, and a few other varieties. These are planted in poor, rocky soil and tended and harvested by hand at extremely low yields for an intense natural concentration of flavor without heaviness.
The goal, in Jane's own words: "expressing and revindicating the quality and singularity of traditional viticulture against the globalization of international varieties and modern winemaking style."" - Winery
