2014 Viatge al Priorat
60% Garnacha, 20% Cabernet, 15% Syrah & 5% Merlot
“Journey to Priorat” – Viatge al Priorat is from the younger vines of the estate, located along the southern slopes of the DO from Porrera to Bellmunt (located just southwest). The soils are all llicorella (black slate) soils at an altitude ranging from 400-600 meters.
Fermentation in tank followed by 8 months aging in third use French oak barrique.
TASTING NOTES |
Viatge al Priorat is a great introduction to Priorat, or for those looking for a more youthful expression of the region (read: not-so-brooding). While the fruit is deep and dark, minerality from the slates, lively acidity and delicate tannin give the wine a taut structure and lift.
