Tasting Notes:

The still unbottled sample of the Garnacha and Cariñena blend 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. There will be 116,000 bottles of the 2016.

Tasting Notes:

A bright and fruity wine with fine tannins and a fresh blueberry and blackberry character. Medium body, linear and focused. Low tannins and more built on fruit. Acid balance. Enjoy. Drink now.
