This is one of the most mineral, sculpted whites you'll try! It tastes as if the wine was tapped directly from pure rock, which it was. Forget about how rare white Priorat is, Pedra de Guix gives the great whites of the world a run for their money.A blend of three varieties from three villages: Poboleda (on schist) provides the Garnatxa Blanca; Torroja (on alluvial soils) the Macabeo; and the chalky/gypsum soils of El Lloar gift the Pedro Ximénez; the old vines of these sites are between 50 and 80 years old.

About the wine

Tasting notes

Heady with savoury verve, it’s an outstanding, pungent and salty rendition of this Priorat yardstick, with laser-point acidity balanced by just the right amount of phenolic grip and textural weight. Such precision and detail are more than rare in the whites from this part of the world.

Expert review

This shows striking concentration and oxidative complexity that’s delivered in a subtle way, with understated aromas of apricot, papaya, cement, honeysuckle and a hint of turmeric. Flavorful, dry and quintessential on the medium-bodied palate with a creamy, sleek mouth-feel and a nice, caressing bite in the finish. Structured and fresh with medium acidity. Fun to drink now.
