Álvaro Palacios Les Terrasses Velles Vinyes 2016

The Álvaro Palacios Les Terrasses Velles Vinyes is a red wine blend of Garnacha and Cariñena (Carignan). While originally conceived as a value wine, Les Terrasses Velles Vignes has slowly evolved into the essence of what makes Priorat special. Drawing on 15+ years of study, Terrasses is sourced from many of the region’s steepest and oldest vineyards—many of them north-facing to avoid the intense afternoon sun.

Les Terrasses Velles Vinyes is a supple and polished red wine that offers bright cherry and plum flavours, with notes of black olive and mountain herb. Light, firm tannins and gentle but bright acidity provide a graceful definition to the wine.
