La Mirona 2020
Single vineyard selection
Pale yellow in colour, soft on the nose with delicate notes of aromatic herbs and fresh stone fruit, elegant on the palate with fresh character, very good acidity and persistent length.
El Soi. Originally a Parellada vineyard planted in 1984 and later re-grafted with Malvasia from the vineyard of L’Hospital de Sitges. Calcareous clayey soils that provide acidity.
Font de la Canya. A plot of Xarel·lo planted in 1991, surrounded by forest that protects it from the sweltering summer heat, offering a perfect microclimate for the development of the vineyard. Produces wines with structure.
La Guàrdia. The highest and most rugged vineyard on the property, situated 350 m above sea level, the soil texture is stony with a predominance of lime, poor in organic matter, giving the wines youth and freshness.
The year 2020 was one of the hardest, most difficult and rainy years in living memory. In January, 250 l/m2 of rain fell and it was already clear that things would get complicated. The wet, warm and rainy spring favoured the rapid spread of mildew, directly affecting the grapes and completely drying out more than half of them. Ultimately, after much effort, work and disappointment, the result was one of the smallest harvests in recent decades, but it was one of very high quality. It was almost as if there had been a natural self-regulation of production in the vineyard following excellent analytical parameters.
