The Roca Grisa, Marco Abella is massively expressive with intense, notes of graphite, plum, blackcurrant and blueberries with coffee and chocolate lurking in the background. Rich, ripe and velvety tannins with a long fresh finish, this wine has plenty going for it now but will continue to age and develop gracefully for several more years. The Roca Grisa (Grey Slate) is a single vineyard wine form Marca Abella’s Malolla vineyard and is one of their top wines.
The Marco Abella family have been producing wines in the Priorat region since the 15th century, with David Marco returning to the region in the early naughties to breath new life into his ancestral vineyards. Marco Abella owns seven plots located on seven different peaks in the village of Porrera. These are the highest plots of the Priorat region. During the winemaking process they only use indigenous yeasts in the fermentation process and age the wines in their own cellars located seven meters below ground level – the lowest tier of their custom built gravity fed winery.

2020 ‘O Font’ Les Deux Cols, Vin de France
Les Deux Cols is a joint venture between Ireland's leading Rhone importer, Simon Tyrell and Charles Derain, one time Sommelier to Alain Ducasse at Le Louis XV in Paris. This Grenache Noir dominated blend is whole bunch and foot trodden, natural yeast fermented in concrete tanks and then matured in a mixture of old barriques and larger demi-muid barrels. Pale in the glass, this is fresh and easy with red fruits and a hint of spice. Hand harvesting takes place at least a week earlier than the neighbouring properties allowing for a fresher style, and all vineyards are either organic or in conversion with some biodynamic practices in use.
