Rancio Sec of Macabeu, Grenache Blanc, and Grenache Gris, from 6 barrels started by the winemaker's grandfather in the 1960s. Each barrel was maintained separately as its own "1-barrel solera," with small amounts of wine taken out or put in, but with the barrels never filled to the top. However, very little wine was ever taken from these barrels; the bulk of it is from the original 1960s winemaking. This extra age has led to incredible concentration of acidity and richness, even though the wine is barely off-dry (approximately 10 g/l of sugar). Spicy, with a sweet earth and a whiskey note, this is truly a wine for contemplation, or maybe mixing a sneaky old-fashioned.
