Product Description
Details

The remarkable Clos Galena is a certified organic red wine produced by the Domini de la Cartoixa winery under the DOQ Priorat label.

The wine is a blend of both traditional and international grapes, namely 40% Grenache, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Carignan and 20% Syrah.

The grapes come from five little plots which were harvested at their optimal ripening point. Once in the cellar, they were macerated for 21 days, after which each variety was separately fermented in stainless steel tanks.

Blended and transferred into French oak barrels, this Spanish red wine was aged for 12 months.

Prior to its bottling, Clos Galena 2015 was gently clarified with egg whites. Finally, it was aged for 24 months in the bottle before its release.

Decant this red wine from Priorat a minimum of 1 hour before drinking.

Drink until 2028.

Appearance

The red wine Clos Galena has a very high, imposing cherry-coloured robe with garnet tinges and a purple hue at the rim.

Nose

The nose of this organic red wine by Domini de la Cartoixa is truly spectacular. Ripe black fruit, blood orange rind, vanille, clove and Jamaican pepper, along with notes of aniseed, balsam, resine, aromatic herbs and, at the very bottom, a never-ending mineral pulse.

Palate

Though this mighty red wine from Priorat is still in its adolescence, it shows great class. Texture is very detailed and lush, with loads of black fruit, chocolate and Mediterranean herbs. The wine has tremendous freshness, and its texture, both supple and meaty, is simply irresistible. Clos Galena has a very long finish with notes of blackberries, dark earth, the purest arabica coffee and exotic spices.

Our personal opinion

An exuberant, first-class, terroir-orientated wine. That is Clos Galena 2015.

High-profile Priorat with a medium-high price that delivers accordingly, perhaps even more than expected. Moreover, I think it will improve over time.
