Grenache Carignan Shiraz Cabernet Sauvignon Priorat Spain
The surrounds of Clos Figueras have been farmed since Roman colonization. There are groves of productive olive trees on the estate, some are centuries of age and yield the most delicious fruit. The original block of vines are also age unknown, returned to life after a period of disuse, they are now source to a Grenache Carignan accord of opulence and humbling virtue. Fermented in the luxury of completely new French oak casks, pigeaged by hand and treated to an extended maceration on skins, followed by a year's maturation in a selection of Allier hogsheads and barriques.
Bright garnet colour. Intense black fruit to the bouquet, forest floor and Mediterranean herbs, sprinkle of savoury spice and minty chocolate notes. A refined palate of red and black lozenge flavours, seamlessness, layered with dark jube and liquorice, red peppers and piquant savouryness, penetrating, opaque and intense, all supported by a length of ductile, yielding tannins.
