Wine maker notes
Aristan is a five acre vineyard that lies next to our winery. This vineyard is owned by Master Sommelier Emmanuel Kemiji (proprietor of Miura Vineyards in California & Managing Director of Clos Pissarra) and named after his two sons, Aristos and Tristan. Made up entirely of 10-year old Grenache (Garnatxa in Catalan) and Syrah vines on soil that is a mixture of clay and slate. The yields are cut back to a miserly one ton to the acre.

Other text
The name Clos Pissarra is derived from the Catalan word for slate, as this is the soil that covers the regions of Montsant (sacred mountain) and Priorat (priory), that lie about 85 miles southwest of Barcelona. Priorat has quickly established itself as the premier wine region in Spain producing wines of great intensity and concentration but yet remaining elegant and balanced. Montsant has found a most comfortable niche, being described as a softer and more approachable version of Priorat, and a great value.

Miura (myu ra) n. 1. Derived from Don Eduardo Miura, the most famous breeder of Spanish fighting bulls; for the Spanish, Miura is a legendary name signifying nobility, boldness and power. Miura is our program that focuses on what I feel are the best regions in California for the growing of Pinot Noir. Within each of those regions I have selected the vineyards that best exemplify that area stylistically and qualitatively.
