Organic – 17 hectares
Gratavinum was established in 2003 when the owners of Parés Baltà – brothers Joan and Josep Cusiné and their winemaking wives Maria Elena Jiménez and Marta Casas – decided to invest in the wild Priorat landscape. The estate, which takes its name from the contraction of Gratallops (the name of the village where the winery is located) and Vinum (Latin for wine), comprises 17 organically-farmed hectares of terraced vineyards. Working with old vines of indigenous grapes as well as newcomer varietals, they produce powerful, structured wines with the distinctive mineral character of Priorat. Their 2PiR cuvee offers an intense, complex and aromatic nose of red fruit preserve and toasty oak, leading to a palate of ripe tannins and fresh, slatey acidity. The result is a wine that is rich but not at all heavy; the perfect accompaniment to all manner of bold, Mediterranean inspired dishes.
