The grapes for the 2017 Principia Mathematica were harvested earlier than ever, but the wine shows good freshness and a varietal nose with character and very integrated oak.This was bottled with very little sulfur and is clean and expressive. It has a soft and tender palate, with integrated acidity (there is less acidity than in 2016). In 2017, it went 100% through malolactic, which has resulted in a slightly creamier and rounder palate that is polished, with a tasty, almost salty finish.

Cataluña, or Catalonia, is a vibrant and diverse wine region in northeastern Spain, renowned for its wide range of wine styles and microclimates. This region encompasses several Denominaciones de Origen (DOs), including the famous DO Penedès, known for its innovative white and red wines, and DO Priorat, highly acclaimed for its powerful and intense red wines. Catalonia is also the heartland of Cava, the Spanish sparkling wine, primarily produced in the Penedès area.

Catalonia's geography is varied, featuring coastal areas, extensive valleys, and rugged mountains, which contribute to the distinct terroirs found within its boundaries. The Mediterranean climate generally offers warm, dry summers and mild winters, ideal for viticulture, with variations in temperature and rainfall influenced by altitude and proximity to the sea.

The region produces a multitude of wine varieties, with an emphasis on both indigenous and international grape types. Traditional red varieties include Garnacha (Grenache) and Cariñena (Carignan), particularly prominent in Priorat and Montsant, where old vines contribute depth and complexity to the wines. For whites, varieties such as Xarel-lo, Macabeo, and Parellada are prominent, especially in the production of Cava.

Catalonia's wine production is characterized by a blend of tradition and innovation, with many producers experimenting with new techniques and sustainable practices while respecting their heritage. This dynamic approach, combined with the rich cultural history of the region, makes Catalonian wines truly unique and highly sought after in the global wine market.
