“A wine like Giné Giné benefits from blind tasting, especially if the purpose of that tasting is to find wines, regardless of price, that speak of their origin. Everything about this wine is pure Priorat: It’s half garnacha and half carignan, all of it grown in llicorella soils by the Giné family, long-time farmers in Gratallops with 200 acres of vines, who made this blend as their first wine in 1996. They ferment the fruit from individual parcels as whole berries in stainless steel without added yeasts, take it through malolactic in barrels, then blend and return it to stainless steel for aging. Their 2018 is black mineral juice: It tastes as if there were a gash cut in the Priorat hills and blackcurrant juice came welling out of the schist. Give it a day of air and the wine’s delicacy begins to shine, layered in sunny fruit and herbs, hard to resist.”
