The first of the villages of the Priorat to get formal recognition as an appellation was Gratallops. This movement of growers, in part led by Alvaro Palacios, was to create an appellation system for the Priorat more like that of Burgundy. From a selection of six different old vine vineyards on the ridgelines that extend from the village of Gratallops. The vines range in age from 15-75 years old.
This red is light and energetic. Vivid flavors of tart cherry, mountain herb, smoke and mineral mingle on a supple frame, supported by light tannins and bright acidity. Focused and fresh. Drink now through 2024. 600 cases made.
