Product Description
Details

Known for her Nita, one of the friendliest Spanish red wines produced in the sometimes imposing Priorat, winemaker Meritxell Pallejà presents the second vintage of her flagship wine.

A single varietal Grenache, Magran Partida Les Manyetes is crafted from young vineyards around 10 years of age. All of them are planted in a estate called Les Manyetes, composed of very hard slate soils of a very particular geological composition. All of the farming operations are performed manually, following the guidelines of biodynamic agriculture.

After the harvest, the grapes of this red wine from Priorat were destemmed, crushed and spontaneously fermented with indigenous yeasts and two daily punch-downs. Fermentation lasted for a lunar cycle.

Then this Grenache from Priorat was aged for 13 months in new and 2nd year French oak barrels. Lastly, Magran Partida Les Manyetes 2015 was aged for a further 3 months before its release.

A high-end red wine, it will considerably improve over the next years. Properly stored, it will drink nicely over the next 10 years.

Production of only 1,000 bottles. Decant a minimum of 1 hour before drinking.

Appearance

The wine Magran Partida Les Manyetes has an attractive ruby colour with a garnet rim.

 

Nose

Intense aromas of cherries, raspberries and aromatic herbs, very pure an expressive. Almost from the start, this Crianza red wine conveys some deep, amazingly pure mineral notions and an intense sense of terroir. This wine by Meritxell Pallejà also features some toasted and spicy notions that need some time to fully integrate, alongside suggestions of garrigue and Mediterranean underbrush.

 

Palate

This is a wine that, though it displays real complexity and an unmistakably Priorat character, is nevertheless quite young. Thus, this varietal Grenache really needs some years so that its many qualities and nuances become harmonised. The fruit is superb, there is a real sense of place, and the tannins and the acidity promise a long life ahead.

The exciting Magran Partida Les Manyetes 2015 is a substantial addition to our portfolio of high-end Priorat wines.

Profound stuff. A bit overpowering right now, but with plenty of potential. Store it for 5 years minimum.

Value
After having drunk many bottles of Nita, the entry-level wine of the winery, I was sort of anxious to taste their new flagship wine. It is a profound, super-telluric Grenache that will surely deliver a spectacular quality in a few years. Right now, it is a bit tight and compressed, with its potential not yet completely unfurled. Buy it know, but store it for some time.
