Best Ever ENV Priorats from Silvia Puig Arrive

How “handmade” are Silvia Puig’s delicious 2015 En Numerous Vermells Priorat reds?  Hand harvested, hand sorted, hand harvested, and hand crafted in lots of just a few hundred cases – or, in the case of Silvia’s newest white, just one 25 case-lot barrel.  Even the boxes are works of handmade art, each sporting a painting by Silvia (or her daughter, Julia).  Better still – these wines which have impressed and delighted many of you for the past 5 years are at their very best ever in vintage 2015 (for the reds) and 2016 (for the whites).  The red Priorats outstrip much more famous (and much bigger) wineries’ efforts at a fraction of the cost.  The Pedro Ximenez white is a jewel box gem like you’ve never tried.  And Silvia’s white Grenache is simply the best in the world.  See the full list, assemble a collection, and enjoy for years to come!
