Grenache Carignan Shiraz Cabernet Sauvignon Priorat Spain
Clos Figueras retain some of the oldest vineyards in Priorat, Serras del Priorat is a compilation of younger vine harvests, fifteen or so years of age, fashioned into a more fruit driven style for approachability, while remaining eloquent of the excellence and sophistication which define Priorat wines. A seamless, well rounded cépage, half Grenache, the balance in Cabernet Sauvignon, Carignan and Syrah, redolent with the perfumes of the region, tightly wound around a core of berry lozenge characters, supported by a chamois of smooth, savoury tannins.
Intense, brightly lit blue black hues. Red fruit bouquet and subtle floral notes, minerality and cassis, pepperyness, hints of vanilla and Mediterranean herbs. A long fresh entry to the palate, tomato characters and vine leaf around a punnet of black berry flavours and olive savouryness, resolving on a fruity, mineral finish, seasoned by rosemary and lavender notes.
