The name Clos Pissarra is derived from the Catalan word for slate, as this is the soil that covers the regions of Montsant (sacred mountain) and Priorat (priory), that lie about 85 miles southwest of Barcelona. El Sol Blanc is a two and a half acre vineyard that lies in the Montsant region in the province of Tarragona and surrounds the Clos Pissarra winery. This vineyard is named after the brutal sun that besieges the area every summer (”The White Sun” in Catalan). Made up entirely of White Grenache (Garnatxa Blanca in Catalan), the soil is a mixture of clay and slate.
The flinty, mineral character of this wine combined with rich peach notes and a lively acidity continue to a palate that shows very good balance and concentration. Only 179 cases produced.
