DO Tarragona, in the SW of Catalunya, was split into 2 parts when DO Montant was given its own status: Camp de Tarragona (from NW Tarragona and along the coast) and The River Ebro (slightly higher). Like so many Catalan DO's over 70% of its production is white and destined for Cava, although hundreds of years ago it was known for its sweet red and rancio wines. As the vineyards climb from the sea to the Serra de Montalt mountains, the soils and climates change from Mediterrnean to Continental, offering a wide range of wine style. In recent years there has been a concerted effort to modernise its wine production, incorporating new grapes and styles into the traditional vineyards of the region.

Oriol was born in Valls, a small town inland of Tarragona well known for its Cal�ots (Catalan leeks) and it's Castells (human tower). Growing up he used to help his uncle in the vineyards and cellars he managed for the local co-operative. Oriol ended up working in Telecomms but realised his work meant little to him. So he quit and started helping his uncle, and soon, having met a chemical engineer from Torres produced BIB ÒEl Vi a PuntÓ together. Here he caught Rene BarbierÕs attention and both having roots in Tarragona, started to produce wine together. Escabeces is the name of a small town in Tarragona where 99% of this rare Cartoixa Vermell (just a few vineyards) is planted.

Tasting note: Dark; amber orange like an aged sweet wine. Good viscosity. Rust; curry leaf; soft spice and red earth on the nose. Opens up to marshmallow and toased nuts. Gentle to start; with spice; heat; tannins and acidity building. The fruit is dry and pithy; with orange peel; marmelade and apricot kernals. Dry and extraordinary with real hold and poise. Finish is pleasingly bitter and a touch floral.
Winemaking Detail: This 0.69ha vineyard was planted in 1983. Oriol keeps its the yield super low in order to increase concentration to help alcohol reach 12%vol. Direct press, with the juice cooled before decanting and fermentation for following for 20 days in SST. Racked into chestnut barrels and aged for 7 months.
