Celler Comunica Montsant

Celler Comunica is located in the town of Falset, 370 metres above sea level in a dry, Mediterranean climate. The vineyard age ranges from 25 to 75 years. Patri Morillo and Pep Aguilar, the wine making team known as “Ya Le Llamaremos” (“we’ll call you”), were not born into the world of wine. They did find it though, and with great passion over the past six years, they have been helping small families around the Mediterranean with their wine making aspirations. “Comunica” (“speak to me”) is their own project. The common wine style in Montsant has been chasing Priorats; the moniker which refers to Montsant as ‘the poor man’s Priorat’ is a misnomer that Pep and Patri have handily dispensed with. By leaving the wine un-oaked, they have left us with the salient details in a wine: the soil, the fruit and the vintage. The grapes here are Garnatxa and Samso (generally old vines) on granitic sand and clay. Farming is organic, vines are a mixture of bush and wire trained. Harvest is by hand and vinification is done with indigenous yeasts. Whole clusters are put in tank there are manual punch downs. The wine is aged on lees in tank and the wine is bottled without filtration and fining. These wines have a lovely purity and freshness allied to the warm climate generous fruitiness of the region. Being totally non interventionist in nature, they can display some reduction and VA on the nose which tends to dissipate with some oxygenation to reveal a sweet fruity and just slightly funky bouquet.
