Grenache and Grenache Blends
Type: Red Table Wine
“Les Crestes” is a fresh, fruity, and expressive wine from Priorat’s exceptional 2016 vintage, when a long and moderately warm growing season produced perfect fruit. For a modestly priced Priorat, this vintage will age very well!
The blend is 80% Grenache, 10% old-vine Carignane, and 10% Syrah, all culled from the steep, licorella soil vineyards. Fruit was hand-picked in small crates, then sorted twice at the winery and vinified by vineyard parcel. The wine aged eight months in fine-grain second-fill French oak barrels. It was bottled unfined and unfiltered.
“Cherry violet rim. Red fruit, ripe fruit, floral, mountain herbs, mineral. Balanced, structured, tasty.”
