The Origin of El Pas de l'Estudiant

El Pas de l'Estudiant comes from a vineyard that was planted in 1947. The farm is located 400m above sea level in a northerly direction, it is reached by a narrow path that used to be the route that children from the village of Serra d’Almos took to go to school in Capçanes, which is why it carries the name Passage of Students.

A Historical Journey

It was a 5km daily round trip. The 4ha farm was planted with Hairy Grenache (its leaves are hairy) in the lower parts, white Grenache and black Carignan in the upper parts. The estate fell into disrepair due to an accident that caused the death of the owner. Of the 4 hectares, 1.8 have survived in perfect condition. Joseph Grau intends to return the farm to its original state of 1947, respecting all the old terraces and its wonderful topography.

Reviving Tradition

The first vintage of this wine was 2021, when they produced a selection of the best strains of the vineyard to see their current potential and assess the reproduction of these same strains for their vegetative recovery. The 2022 vintage is harvested as a field blend, harvesting all the varieties at the same time as was done in the initial years of this estate.

Tasting notes
In the glass, the wine shows an ethereal presence that surrounds and fills us with aromas, showing the small red fruit that reminds us of the cherries. It ́s a pure, clean and vibrant wine, which makes us keep an eye on its evolution in the glass and which arouses admiration with every minute that passes by its complexity. In the mouth it is a wine of great depth, touches of cherry in the throat gives us the dimension of its concentration full of finesse
