Product Description
Details

Crafted by the Domini de la Cartoixa winery from grapes grown in the heart of Priorat, Galena Ed. Didier Lourenço is a very interesting Spanish red wine.

A long-time collaborator of the winery, the painter Didier Lourenço is the author of the paintings that illustrate the labels.

This certified organic wine is made from a complex blend of Grenache, Carignan, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Merlot collected at their optimal ripening point. Manually harvested and meticulously selected, each variety was separately vinified in stainless steel tanks. 

Gently crushed before malolactic fermentation, this red wine from Priorat was then blended and transferred into 80% French and 20% American oak barrels, where it was aged for 12 months. After that, it was aged for a further 24 months in the bottle.

Drink Galena 2015 Ed. Didier Lourenço until 2029.

Decant a minimum of 1 hour before drinking.

Appearance

The red wine from Priorat Galena Ed. Didier Lourenço has a high, bright cherry-coloured robe with a violet rim.

Nose

Terroir-driven and very complex, the nose of this Priorat red wine by Domini de La Cartoixa is defined by the mineral, "llicorella" notes coming from Priorat's one-of-a-kind slate soils. We also perceive aromas of ripe black fruit, balsam, menthol and a thin, gentle layer of spices. Simply great.

Palate

Full-bodied, but also smooth and velvety textured. The wine Didier Lourenço by Clos Galena has a remarkable freshness, real complexity and great tension. Pure notes of fruit, incense, cocoa and spices, a nice mineral background and medium-long finish with some mineral and undergrowth remembrances.

Our personal opinion

Bold and exuberant, Galena 2015 Ed. Didier Lourenço is a success. It makes a great pairing with hearty dishes. It is also a good meditation wine.

excellent priorat
Value
This Priorat turned out to be a great surprise. Of course, it shows its origin, but in the most attractive way, that is to say, with a deep earthy character, alcohol almost unnoticeable, and an acidity which is simply remarkable. Review by Skirmish (Posted on 08/03/2019)
