Characteristics of Finca Dofí

Finca Dofí is an excellent wine from the D.O. Priorat region produced by Álvaro Palacios, the man behind l´Ermita.

Álvaro Palacios was one of the visionaries who helped establish the D.O Priorat. Towards the end of the 80´s, Palacios, along with René Barbier, Carles Pastrana, Josep Lluís Pérez and Daphne Glorian,  knew of the potential of the land and its soils for producing superb wines. They helped transform what was once a forgotten land into practically one of the worlds best known wine producing regions.

A bet on the land, on authenticity, on old vines and soils with large personalities. Finca Dofí is one of the biggest exponents. This red wine is a blend of different grape varieties, but Grenache is the main protagonist. The grenache grapes used are taken from a small 9 hectare estate which gives the wine its name, the Finca Dofí. The vineyards are planted on terraces and slopes facing northeast, southwest and east at an altitude of 300 meters above sea level. The soils are mainly licorella, the name given to the slate in Priorat. This soil composition is so typical of that area, and they bring a special character to the wines.

In regards to the production process, the grapes are destemmed and gently pressed. Fermentation takes places in wooden tanks, while the ageing process takes about 18 months in French Oak Barrels.

Finca Dofí is more than just a bottle of wine. It is an experience that will take to the authentic Priorat. A pure wine, bodied and silky while powerful, concentrated and authentic.

Tasting notes Finca Dofí

El Priorat was defined 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, high temperatures and the lack of rainfall resulted in the earliest harvest in history. However, we were blessed with a sea breeze known as garbinada, which protected the green leaves full of chlorophyll by providing light humidity. Harvest of the foreign varieties used to make Camins del Priorat began in late August, when the extreme conditions of the vintage were confirmed. The native varieties, such as Garnacha and Cariñena, especially in the seasoned older vineyards, reached their finest potential and beauty.
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.
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.
