Alvaro Palacios 2018 Les Terrasses Priorat, Spain

Available:  Only one left $48.99
Size: 750.00ml
Cariñena / Grenache / Cabernet Sauvignon / Syrah Les Terrasses is a 'regional wine' from Priorat, made with grapes from 80 different vineyards spread out around eight villages. Grapes are destemmed and lightly pressed and the must left to ferment in concrete and oak vats with native yeast. The resulting wine matures in oak barrels and vats for between eleven and thirteen months depending on the vintage. Like all Álvaro Palacios creations, it is an elegant wine but it also has an interesting earthy feeling with a discrete rustic character. A clear and honest wine, with subtle and juicy tannins, it is a faithful expression of the top-quality healthy grapes used to produce it. It offers a velvety feel even though it makes no attempt to hide its tough origins, reminding the drinker of the dry and dusty tracks winding up among the mythical broken slate Priorat vineyards. Les Terrasses has intense and complex aromas that are both fruity and floral. A hint of cherry liquor and plums blends with spicy and lactic tones to create a wonderfully balanced wine. Pair it with roasts, red meats, meat casseroles and small game dishes.
