Alvaro Palacios - Les Terrasses - Priorat

Tasting notes

2016 -  Les Terrasses Velles Vinyes has vibrant acidity in a warm year when ripening stopped as the vines blocked and stopped producing sugar and maintained the acidity. The grapes were small because the year had also been very dry. It's juicy and with good ripeness and some dusty tannins, reminiscent of the dusty roads among the vineyards of Priorat along with that decomposed slate.

    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!
