Availability: In stock
Produced by bodega Àlvarez Duran, Terroir X La Tercera is an impeccable Spanish red wine from Priorat made in a traditional style.
A blend of Carignan, Grenache, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, the grapes come from bush vines planted on steep slate slopes which confer the wine a distinctive minerality.
Each variety was separately harvested and individually vinified in stainless steel tanks with indigenous yeasts. After that, Terroir X La Tercera 2019 was transferred into new French oak barrels, where it was aged for 14 months. Finally, the wine was bottled and aged for some months before hitting the market.
It is important to decant this Crianza red wine at the very least 40 minutes before drinking.
Pair this red wine from Priorat with casseroles, hearty meat recipes and game dishes.
The red wine Terroir X La Tercera is deep ruby with a purplish rim.
|Nose||This blend of Carignan, Grenache, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot feels round, nuanced and impeccably balanced. Blackberries, blackcurrants and bitter cocoa, with deep mineral undertones and some spicy and smokey remembrances.|
Nicely balancing power and elegance, this wine from bodega Àlvarez Duran is fresh, pleasant and detailed, with bridled tannins and a first-rate acidity. The spicy notes are more prominent, and fruit is simply exquisite. Finish is long and deeply mineral.
|Our personal opinion||The confidential Terroir X La Tercera 2019 is an exquisitely crafted Priorat red wine.|
