Details

The new vintage of Iugiter, produced La Conreria d'Scala Dei, is even more interesting than the previous ones.

Made from estate-owned wines belonging to the Priorat DOQ, this time this Spanish red wine is made solely from Grenache and Samsó (Carignan), with no international varieties complementing the local ones.

Coming from vineyards located in the towns of La Vilella Alta and Scala Dei, all of them planted in steep slate slopes, after a meticulous harvest the grapes were macerated with the skins and fermented in stainless steel tanks and 600-litre barrels.

This red wine from Priorat was then aged in French oak barrels of different sizes for 18 months.

Before its commercial release, Iugiter 2014 was aged for a further 18 months in the bottle.

Decant a minimum of 1 hour before drinking.

Drink this reserve red wine until 2025+.

Additional Information

Appearance

The wine Iugiter from Priorat has a very bright, clean cherry colour with a purple rim.

Nose

Powerful and characteristic, this blend of Grenache and Samsó is more expressive than ever. Aromas of ripe black fruit, some toasted notes, cocoa powder, sweet spices, fresh herbal suggestions, dim mineral notes and some floral hints

Palate

Lighter and nimbler than one might expect, this red wine by La Conreria d'Scala Dei glides across the palate displaying a very good acidity and some smooth, mature tannins. Fresh notes of red berries, remembrances of Mediterranean garrigue and an enticing minerality. Long finish with remembrances of spices and balsam.

Our personal opinion

A modern-style Priorat, Iugiter 2014 is characteristic and elegant.
