Clos Figueras Font de la Figuera CONFIRM VINTAGE

Grenache Carignan Shiraz Mourvedre Cabernet Sauvignon Priorat Spain
Vinified from the fruit of auspicious vines, established 1998 around an eminent block of ancient Cariñena and Garnacha. The soils here are unique, plantings are exposed to the temperate Mediterranean winds of Ebro Valley, brisk, envigorating breezes which extend the ripening season and encourage grapes to form remarkable esters. Font de la Figuera is the second growth from Clos Figueras, a wonderfully complex cépage of Cabernet and Grenache, Carignan, Mourvedre and Shiraz, seamless and intense, cossetted by lithe, silken tannins.
