Les Terrasses Velles Vinyes Price € 37.70
Each glass of Les Terrases is a journey on the palate in the steep landscape of the Priorat, as it consists of grapes from no less than nine municipalities of the DO: Gratallops: La Vilella Baixa, Bellmunt, El Lloar, El Molar, Porrera , Scala Dei, Torroja and Poboleda. It is a wine with a perfect balance and excellent expressiveness in the nose. A faithful reflection of the most historic Priorat with a great value for money. Starting in 2011 the blend has changed to only indigenous varietals - Garnacha and Samso.
Sensory features: Brilliant ruby. A complex bouquet evokes raspberry and blackberry preserves, Indian spices, potpourri and smoky minerals. Deep, seamless and powerful, with lively fresh black raspberry, boysenberry and spicecake flavours, and a candied violet note that builds with air. The gently tannic finish shows excellent length and clarity.
