Founded more than a century ago, Vinícola del Priorat, producer of Ònix Clàssic, is Priorat's biggest coop. Nowadays, the company manages over 300 plots of vineyards in Catalonia's most prestigious region.
The harvest is done manually in boxes of 15 kg, when each plot achieved an optimal ripeness. Once in the winery, the grapes were destemmed and transferred into stainless steel tanks, where this red wine from Priorat completed both alcoholic and malolactic fermentations.
Drink Ònix Clàssic 2017 until 2021.
The red wine Ònix Clàssic has an intense and bright cherry color. Clean and with a violet rim.
This young red wine from Priorat is intense and very expressive, with very ripe red and black fruit. Subtle spices, alongside some fresh notes of Mediterranean forest and a nice mineral background, highly characteristic of the Priorat llicorella soil.
Fresh and nice entrance. This blend of Grenache & Samsó by Vinícola del Priorat is very tasty, intense and delicately warm. The fruits (cherries, blackberries, plums, currants) are delicious, almost jammy. Good acidity and nice tannins, friendly astringent. Long finish with fruity remembrances and a mineral aftertaste.
|Our personal opinion||
As the name suggests, the wine Ònix Clàssic 2017 is a perfect expression of a classic Priorat wine. Perfect with a good steak.
