Alvaro Palacios : Camins del Priorat 2020

A complex and refined Priorat red wine by Alvaro Palacios

The producer

Regarded as one of the world's greatest winemakers, Alvaro Palacios is the creator of legendary vintages such as "l'Ermita", "Les Terrasses" and "Finca Dofi", which have revealed the exceptional terroir of the Priorat. Accessible in its youth and perfectly executed by Alvaro Palacios, the Camins del Priorat wine is a perfect introduction to the singularity of this wine-growing area, the home of great Spanish wines.

The vineyard

Alvaro Palacios' Camins del Priorat 2020 is a Priorat wine made from grapes that stem from 8 different villages in the Priorat region of Catalonia in northern Spain: Gratallops, Porrera, Torroja, Les Vilelles, Bellmunt, El Molar, El Lloar and Poboleda. The vines are planted on the typical soils of the appellation, the famous "Llicorella", very friable slate soils. The vines are between 13 and 45 years old and are planted in terraces on very steep slopes between 350 and 700 metres above sea level. The climate of the area is Mediterranean, with a maritime influence.

The vintage

The heavy rainfall at the beginning of 2020 resulted in a strong development of mildew. The milder conditions for the rest of the year, particularly in the run-up to the harvest, meant that, despite lower yields, the grapes reached optimum maturity and quality.

Vinification and ageing

The grapes are harvested by hand based on the ripeness level of each vineyard and then destemmed. They are fermented in stainless steel vats, tuns and concrete vats using indigenous yeasts. Maceration between 20 and 30 days. The wine is aged for 4 to 6 months in barrels and tuns.

The blend

Grenache (55%)

Carignan (8%)

Syrah (15%)

Cabernet Sauvignon (12%)

Merlot (10%).
