Wine acidity refers to the tartness of a wine, which gives a tingling sensation on the side of the tongue. A metallic-like sharp taste is also associated with high acidity.

Costers del Priorat's Pissarres is a vivid portrayal of Spain's rugged Priorat landscape, where vines wrestle with slate soils – locally known as 'llicorella' – to produce wines of concentrated intensity. The estate's blend, typically featuring Garnacha and Cariñena, is nurtured in this unique terroir, characterized by its steep terraces and scarce rainfall, resulting in low yields of high-quality grapes. Traditional winemaking is employed with a modern sensibility, including careful temperature control and aging in both French oak and concrete, to craft a wine that is both powerful and polished, mirroring the essence of Priorat.
