Jordi Llorens is an absolute sunbeam of a human. So kind and happy, he lights up the room with his positivity and infectious smile and his wines are filled with the same uplifting joy and are insanely pure, vibrant and alive. Easily one of our favourite natural wine producers in Spain, we were lucky enough to visit him and his incredible but tiny winery and vineyards in September 2019 and he repaid the favour when he visited Australia in November and hosted an epic event with us at Mr West.
Jordi has been producing his own wine in the stunning Conca de Barbera region of Catalonia since 2008 and in 2012, after being inspired by fellow Catalonian natural winemaker Joan Ramon Escoda, he decided to produce all his wines without any additions whatsoever, just beautiful organic grapes.
Each year Jordi creates a special and unique blend to celebrate the vintage. Each named after the year since his first vintage. So, this wine is a celebration of his 10thvintage and is an incredible mega blend of all of the grapes both red and white that he grows. Each varietal was picked at optimum ripeness with most fermented separately, but all were blended together and transferred into clay amphora to settle and mature as one.
The resulting wine is an ethereal wine of elegance and purity. Vibrant and alive with each grape adding a layer of complexity and liveliness. A truly special wine to celebrate Jordi’s 10thyear!
