El Camins del Priorat 2019, Alvaro Palacios, Priorat
Out of stock
Black plum colour. Aromas of licorice, currants and blackberries. Supple and velvety on the attack, the wine offers a gorgeous ripe blueberry, fig, and blackcurrant fruit accented by notes of dark roasted coffee beans and dark chocolate. Fine tannins emerge on the wine’s back-palate. Long, spicy, licorice-tinged finish.
Former Decanter Man of the Year, Álvaro Palacios, is credited with putting Priorat on the fine wine map. His famous single-vineyard L’Ermita is now one of Spain’s most sought-after reds. Álvaro comes from an exemplary winemaking background. He was born in Rioja, and brought up in the prestigious family winery, Palacios Remondo. But his pioneering spirit led him to study winemaking in Bordeaux, which included a stint at Pomerol icon, Château Pétrus. In 1989, he joined forces with Rene Barbier to set up a winery in a neglected corner of Spain not then known for wine, Priorat.
