Characteristics of Camins del Priorat

Camins del Priorat is a red wine coupage of the Garnacha, Cariñena, Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot varieties produced by the Álvaro Palacios winery in the D.O. Q. Priorat in Gratallops, Catalonia.

The grapes used to make the Camins del Priorat wine grow in eight different municipalities: Gratallops, Porrera, Torroja, Les Vilelles, Bellmunt, El Molar, El Lloar and Poboleda. Each of these places have the characteristic Priorat soils made up of licorella (slate) and the vines range in age from 11 to 41 years old.

When the grapes reach the winery, the clusters are completely destemmed and gently squeezed to begin alcoholic fermentation, which takes place with native yeasts and in cement and wooden vats with cap plunges. The resulting wine undergoes malolactic fermentation in vats and ages in barrels and wooden vats for four to six months, depending on the vintage.

Camins del Priorat is the perfect introduction and overview of the sensations and landscapes that Álvaro Palacios, a renowned winemaker recognized worldwide, showcases through each of his wines.

Tasting notes Camins del Priorat

Camins del Priorat 2018 is a red wine with aromas of ripe and juicy red fruits on the nose, accompanied by floral nuances and mineral and liquorice notes. On the palate it is delicate and tasty, with velvety tannins that accompany a sweet and fruity expression. The perfect wine to open now, but that can also be kept for up to five years.
The Priorat region was marked by heavy drought and heat. Following an autumn and winter with normal temperatures and rainfall, spring began with an abnormal drought and high temperatures. Flowering was successful, occurring before the expected date, but the rains didn’t come. During the summer the high temperatures continued, and the lack of rainfall resulted in the earliest harvest in history. In general, the wines of this vintage are noted for their concentration, being less pronounced in wines produced with local varieties such as Grenache or Cariñena. Perfect for enjoying young, and with a medium aging capacity.
We present the new 2016 vintage, characterised by the wettest winterin the last five years. Not only did it rain in winter, but there was also wet weather up until summer arrived, especially inMarch and April. In summer everything changed, and it was one of the driest inhistory, with only 28 litres being recorded between July and October.If we compare the temperatures in 2012 and 2016, the 2016 crophad to endure a much colder winter than in 2012, which turned outto be positive, since the frost cleared the fields ofvine parasites. During the spring, lower temperaturesthan in 2012 were also recorded.Due to all these climatic conditions there was a delay insprouting, which began on March 28th, and which led to a delayin flowering of between three and four weeks.Once the summer arrived, the Priorat got all the luck, sincethe rains disappeared, while in the rest of Europethey were incessant. It was something that nobody expected considering thewinter we’d had. Taking into account the delay insprouting, the harvest started around mid-October on some ofthe estates.Obtaining fresh wines with an extraordinary acidity is dueto this long duration of the grape in the strain that has so characterisedthis vintage.
The vintage began in autumn in the best possible way, with good rainfalls that would fill the water reserves for optimal growth development. Winter was characterised by low temperatures and even snow covered some areas of Priorat. March started wet and cold, which delayed the budding of the vines. In mid-May, flowering was encouraged and was followed by a somewhat unstable June with several rainfalls.
