Product Description
Details

From our point of view, the only reason why the wine De Muller lo Cabaló is not better known is because, despite being a first-class Priorat, it is not produced by a "fancy" winery.

Made from grapes coming from the best plots owned by the De Muller winery, this Spanish red wine certainly speaks for itself.

The composition of this red wine from Priorat features four varieties: Grenache (75%), Merlot & Syrah (10% both), and Carignan (5%).

Harvested in late September, the grapes were macerated and fermented in stainless steel tanks.

After the completion of spontaneous malolactic fermentation, the wine was transferred into new French oak barrels, where it was aged for 15 months.

Finally, De Muller lo Cabaló 2015 was aged for 12 months in the cellar prior to its commercial release.

An age-worthy wine, it will drink beautifully over the next 8 years. Decant a minimum of 1 hour before drinking.

Appearance

The reserve red wine De Muller Lo Cabaló has a clean, bright, medium-high cherry-coloured robe with a garnet rim.

Nose

This bold reserve red wine from Priorat has a really deep nose, enticing and complex. Aromas of ripe red fruit, aromatic herbs, underbush, coffee, cocoa and menthol, punctuated by deep mineral undertones and some earthy and balsamic remembrances. Really characteristic.

Palate

Intense, profound and well-structured, this red wine by De Muller fills the mouth with blackcurrants, raspberries, remembrances of pine needles, rosemary, spices and black stones. This Priorat red wine has a very good acidity and a silky texture, with some ripe tannins and a long, wonderfully mineral finish.

Our personal opinion

Authenticity in a bottle, De Muller lo Cabaló 2015 encapsulates the mineral soul of Priorat. Nice ageing potential.

Surprising combination of old and modern-style Priorat. Super expressive fruit and yet very fresh, fabulous with a Christmas Turkey.

An old-style Priorat with elegance, terroir and a great balance. Price is reasonable for me.
