Characteristics of Gratallops

Gratallops is an organic red wine coupage of the Garnacha, Samsó (Cariñena) and other white varieties produced by the Álvaro Palacios winery, under the D.O.Q. Priorat, in Catalonia.

This “Vi de Vila” is made with clusters from eleven plots: Ermites, Torrent, Coll del Corral, Camp d’en Piqué, Socarrats, Carrerada, Les Sorts, Mas d’en Pallarès, Manyetes, L’Ermita and L’Hort de l’Olivar in Gratallops, a wine region in Tarragona, Spain, composed of the area’s characteristic slate soils (licorella) and vines aged between 15 and 70 years old.

When the grapes reach the winery, they are destemmed and lightly pressed. Alcoholic fermentation takes place in small wooden tubs with occasional cap plunges. The resulting wine ages for 16 to 18 months in oval tanks and French oak bocoyes, a type of large barrel.

In this coupage of two red varieties, Garnacha and Samsó, there is also a very small amount of local white grapes like Garnacha Blanca, Macabeo and Pedro Ximénez.

All wines signed by Álvaro Palacios, the Priorat wizard, are guaranteed to be elegant and refined. They have turned him into a leading figure in international viticulture and are some of the best and most sought after wines in the world.

Tasting notes Gratallops

Gratallops 2017 is a juicy red wine with fruit, balsamic notes and mineral nuances on the nose. On the palate it is powerful with tannins that bring texture. A concentrated and balanced wine with prominent fruits and a flavoursome, long and elegant aftertaste.
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.
Nose
Nose
Nose
Sight Intense, deep cherry colour with purple edges. Clean and bright wine with a high robe. Dense, slow-falling tears. Very attractive. Nose Intense, very Mediterranean, very complex and seductive aromas. Its abundant notes of quite fleshy ripe black fruit with a nuance of liquor are released with a huge minerality that completes the set without covering other aromas. After swirling the glass, an explosion of aromas is released which range from the hot and sweet spices and the abundant balsamic notes to the nuances of black coffee, cocoa, elegant toasted hints and smoke, wrapped in a tasty and seductive creaminess. A subtle touch of violets is also noticed when the wine is already widely opened. Taste This wine has a wide and bulky attack and a long, very silky and tasty mid palate, full of juicy notes of fruit and balsamic aromas, with a great creaminess and an incredible mineral background. It is meaty and shows a complete structure. Its polished but slightly dry tannins still need some time to round out. This wine has an excellent acidity and a very long and persistent finish with fruity and mineral sensations. Excellent wine from Priorat, which reflects the grapes and the terroir of this region. Very elegant and very expressive wine. A pleasure for all the senses.
Sight Dark, deep and intense cherry colour with intense purple edges. Very bright wine with a high robe. Dense and slightly coloured, slow-falling tears. Nose Intense, clean, complex and seductive nose. Its aromas of ripe black fruit are harmoniously mixed with refined toasted notes and mineral hints. It gradually gains in expressivity and nuances and deep and refreshing mint and balsamic notes (eucalyptus) are released. Some hints of aromatic herbs, creamy spices, quite roasted notes, black coffee, cocoa and smoked nuances are also felt on a soft, elegant and very mineral background. Taste It has a good, soft and elegant attack and a long, silky and very tasty mid palate, full of juicy fruit and balsamic aromas. A fleshy wine with a great structure. Polished, ripe and very pleasant tannins and an excellent, integrated acidity. Round and balanced wine. Long and very persistent finish with an aftertaste of ripe fruit. Elegant smoked notes are felt at retro-olfaction.  A pleasant, delicate and elegant estate wine from Priorat, with its own personality.
