Red Wine GR-174 2022
Availability: In stock
This interesting Spanish red wine bears the name of a rural trail that traverses the Priorat region.
Produced by Casa Gran del Siurana, GR-174 is made from grapes coming from two estates located in Bellmunt del Priorat. The first one, La Casa Gran, is near the banks of the Siurana river, and it is mainly composed of red slate soils. The second one, La Fredat, is composed of black slate soils.
Harvested by hand, the grapes were destemmed, macerated and separately fermented. After that, the wine was drawn off and went through malolactic fermentation in French oak barrels. Finally, GR-174 2022 was aged for 5 months in the barrels.
Aerate this Priorat red wine 20 minutes before drinking.
The red wine GR-174 is medium violet with a ruby rim.
This blend of Grenache, Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, Samsó, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Ull de Llebre smells of amarena cherries, flowers, tobacco leaves, balsam and dark mineral.
Fresh and deep, this wine from Casa Gran del Siurana is smooth and well-balanced, with a tense acidity and a medium, mineral finish.
|Our personal opinion||
Characterful but not overpowering, GR-174 2022 is a fairly good introduction to Priorat.
