Alvaro Palacios Les Terrasses 2018
|Region||Spain, Catalonia, Priorato|
The welcome door to the classic Priorat mosaic. The updating of an austerity, a fineness and an ancient knowledge. It comes from 80 parcels of old vines in eight municipalities. The wine that recovers the forms of tradition and illuminates the quiet distinction of yesteryear. A privileged access to the sensual complexity of the Priorat.
Shimmering violet. Expressive aromas of cherry, blueberry and pipe tobacco pick up floral and exotic spice nuances with aeration. Concentrated yet energetic in the mouth, offering red and blue fruit, floral pastille and candied licorice flavors sharpened by smoky mineral and spice flourishes. Fine-grained tannins give shape to a very long, spicy finish that leaves a sappy blue fruit note behind.
