Tasting notes

91 Points - The Wine Advocate

"The regional red blend 2018 Camins del Priorat was produced with grapes from 101 plots from eight villages in Priorat and wants to represent the overall character of the zone. It's a blend of 35% Garnacha, 20% Cariñena, 20% Syrah, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Merlot that fermented in a combination of stainless steel and oak vats and matured in barrique and oak vats for four to six months. It's young and fruit-driven with some herbal hints from the French grapes, which were picked early, intermixed with licorice and fennel. It's nicely textured, happy and fresh, juicy, clean and with no noticeable oak. It has a modern and clean profile. The tannins are soft and round. It's like a more concentrated version of 2016 and 2014, both cool years. Easy to drink and very pleasant. 236,000 bottles produced." - Luis Gutiérrez

    Alvaro Palacios

    Onshore Cellars - ICONIC Producer

    Elected "Man of the Year" by Decanter in 2015 and announced the most sensational winemaker in Spain by The Wine Spectator, Alvaro Palacios is a true enthusiast who has revolutionised the Spanish wine panorama for the last 30 years, helping to re-establish two regions on the wine map of Spain. Priorat in the late 80’s which was unpopular for wine and very difficult to access due to its steep slopes. Then the Bierzo, 10 years later, an appellation with enormous potential, but with poor soil and old Mencia vines, a grape variety almost forgotten at the time. In 2000, he also took over the family estate in Rioja. The style of Alvaro is found in all his wines: fruity, without heaviness, and perfect drinkability!
