Details

This is the entry-level Spanish red wine of Álvaro Palacios in Priorat.

A blend of local and international varieties, Camins del Priorat is made from 35% Grenache, 25% Carignan, 17% Cabernet Sauvignon, 13% Syrah and 10% Merlot, coming from 10 to 50-year-old vines grown in plots scattered over different towns in the region.

Harvested by hand and selected in the vineyard and in the cellar, the grapes were gently crushed and then fermented in concrete vats, oak vats and stainless steel tanks. Afterwards the wine was transferred into oak vats to complete malolactic fermentation.

Subsequently, while some of the wine remained in the wooden vats the rest of it was transferred into French oak barrels and aged for 4-6 months. Clarified with egg whites, Camins del Priorat 2018 was neither filtered nor stabilized prior to its bottling.

Aerate this red wine from Priorat 30 minutes before drinking.

Palate

    This is a must-have. Excellent gateway Priorat, en route to its wilder side. Palacios retains his magic touch.
