Cada copa de Les Terrasses es un viaje por el escarpado paisaje del Priorat, ya que se compone de uvas procedentes de ocho términos municipales de la D.O.Ca. Priorat: Gratallops, La Vilella Baixa, Bellmunt, El Lloar, El Molar, Porrera, Torroja y Poboleda. Es un vino con un perfecto equilibrio y una excelente expresividad en nariz. Un reflejo fiel de este paisaje histórico y lleno de misterio que cuenta con una alta capacidad de guarda.
Viñedo y elaboración
Opinión de los críticos
The regional 2019 Les Terrasses Velles Vinyes was produced with a blend of grapes from 80 plots in eight villages from Priorat, 82% Garnacha with 17% Cariñena and 1% white grapes, a year unusually high in Garnacha and unusually low in Cariñena that suffered a lot from the heat. The destemmed and lightly crushed grapes fermented in concrete and oak vats with indigenous yeasts, and the wine matured in French oak barrels for 12 months. What happened here is that Cariñena was burned by a heat spike of 43 degrees Celsius on the 28th of June, and there was a wildfire in Montsant that perhaps could have warmed things up even more. I think there might be a change toward more Garnacha and elegance in the wines from Álvaro Palacios in Priorat, as this is brighter and less rustic than this wine used to be, more polished, perfumed and fine. The year of heat and drought. 101,600 bottles produced.
A solid Priorat with fine-grained tannins and mineral, berry and light spice undertones. Medium body. Fruity and focused finish. Drink or hold.
