Characteristics of Clos Galena

Clos Galena is a red wine from the D.O. Priorat produced by the Clos Galena – Domini de la Cartoixa winery. It is a blend of the Cabernet SauvignonSyrahGarnacha Tinta and Cariñena varieties.

The grape used comes from five of the winery’s 14 hectares of vineyards, which they cultivate ecologically. After a meticulous selection process, the Clos Galena grapes are harvested by hand. Once they enter the winery, the grapes are left to ferment and macerate in stainless steel tanks. Each variety undergoes these processes independently.

The skins are gently pressed later, after which they continue with malolactic fermentation.

Lastly, the final definitive blend is carried out. The wine rests for twelve months in new French oak barrels before refining for another two years in the bottle.  

Alcohol: 14.5%
Serve at 16ºC
We recommend decanting before consumption
Pairing

Tasting notes Clos Galena

A year with a very good balance. This vintage was characterised by the absence of water stress for the plants. Winter and spring were favourable in terms of rainfall and temperatures were slightly higher than usual. At the time of budding, there was no rain, so the vines developed in a suitable manner. The flowering took place in a clean way and the Grenache vines settled in an excellent way. Summer was characterised by cool and dry days, but also humid, which led to good photosynthesis and growth of the plants. During the end of the summer, before the harvest, there was still some humidity, which preserved the freshness of the soil and, consequently, achieving a gradual ripening of the grapes, perfect to retain the aromas and the good acidity. The negative factor was the rain during the harvest days. In short, the vintage has been somewhat atypical for Priorat, with wines that are less voluminous than in a normal year in the area, but with a good acidity that is reflected in the wines and that will keep them optimal for many years.
A year that started with some problems with the flowering but ended up being very good. Winter was colder and rainier than usual. Spring continued with days of low temperatures and a lot of water that delayed flowering and the consequent setting problems until the end of March, affected production. After a complicated year, when the summer began, the rains stopped and the temperatures rose, providing excellent ripening due to optimal rainfall during the year. The year has therefore been one of the best in recent years. Fluidity, acidity and concentration augur for a long life of the wines of this vintage.
