Tasting Notes

In conjunction with the Consejo Regulador, Álvaro successfully lobbied for legalisation allowing the naming of wines according to their Village location. Prior to this, a perverse illegality applied, whereby growers were not allowed to use Village names on their wines. There are now 12 legal Priorat Vi de Vila sub-regional village appellations. The first release of such was Álvaro’s 2007 ‘Vi de Vila Gratallops’. 

The fruit source is Álvaro’s various holdings in-and-around Gratallops, 8.5 hectares in 10 parcels other than Finca Dofi and L’Ermita. The wine’s composition for the first vintages was roughly 1/3 each of Garnatxa, Caranyena and Cabernet. From 2011, it’s Garnatxa with about 15% old-vine Caranyena and some white. De-stemmed, spontaneous fermentation in open wooden vat, macerated 40 days, 16 months in mid-sized 1-2yo French oak. Unfiltered. - Importer Note
