Product Description

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

Made from the best estate vineyards of bodega De Muller, this Spanish red wine from DOQ Priorat nonetheless speaks for itself.

The composition of this reserva red wine includes four varieties: Grenache (75%), Merlot and Syrah (10% each), and Carignan (5%).

Harvested in late September, the grapes were macerated and fermented in stainless steel tanks. After undergoing a spontaneous malolactic fermentation, the wine was transferred into new American and French oak barrels, where it was aged for 14 months.

Finally, De Muller lo Cabaló 2016 was aged for 12 months in the cellar prior to its commercial release.

It is important to decant this age-worthy red wine from Priorat 1 hour before drinking at the very least.

Additional Information
Additional Information

The red wine De Muller Lo Cabaló is deep ruby with a garnet rim.


This blend of Grenache, Merlot, Syrah and Carignan 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.


Structured and characteristic, this red wine from bodega De Muller carries flavours of blackcurrants, raspberries, remembrances of pine needles, rosemary, spices and black stones. Steely acidity and a silky texture, with ripe tannins and a long, wonderfully mineral finish.

Our personal opinion

Authenticity in a bottle, De Muller lo Cabaló 2016 encapsulates the mineral soul of Priorat. Considerable 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.
