Characteristics of Galena

Galena 2010 is a red wine from the Priorat prepared by the Domini de la Cartoixa winery.

The winery is located in the town of El Molar (Tarragona) and its name refers to the Carthusian monks of Scaladei that, since the twelfth century, cultivated the vineyards.

Galena 2010 is a blend of Grenache (35%), Cabernet Sauvignon (25%), Carignan (15%) and Merlot (25%). The grapes come from vineyards with fourteen plots where ecological agriculture is applied.

The development of Galena starts with careful harvest and manual selection of grapes. Once in the winery, fermentation and maceration of each variety occurs separately in stainless steel tanks. Subsequently, a soft pressing of the skins is followed by malolactic fermentation.

After the vinification process, the blend of different varieties is performed before entering the barrels, where the wine remains for 12 months. Finally Galena spends 24 months aging in the bottle before marketing.

Tasting notes Galena

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.
