Characteristics of L'Ermita

L'Ermita is one of those wines that crosses the border of what a wine is, to become an object of desire, an exclusive piece, worshipped and coveted by many and achieved by very few.

L'Ermita is the great masterpiece by Alvaro Palacios in Priorat. A sublime red wine made from Grenache with a small percentage of Cariñena and 2% of white grape varieties.

The grapes used for its production come from a small plot of just over 2 acres with slate floors and very old vines, between 75 and 100 years old, located in the village of Gratallops. The low production is carefully selected. The selected grapes are destemmed and gently squeezed. The varieties are vinified separately. Alcoholic fermentation takes place in small wooden vats, applying movements to extract all possible colour and fruit.

The malolactic fermentation and subsequent aging takes place in new French oak barrels for a period of 18 months.

L'Ermita is one of Spain's best-known wines. A masterpiece. A round wine, spectacular. With all the character and personality of Priorat.

Tasting notes L'Ermita

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 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.
Sight Very intense cherry colour. Nose Aromas of mountain herbs, spices, ripe red fruit and toasted notes. Taste Very tasty and spicy palate. Elegant and very fine tannins. Full in the mouth. Long finish.

Sight Intense and dark cherry colour, almost purple, with orange trims. Bright. Very high robe and dense tear. Nose Deep and intense nose. The initial aromas of smoked and fruit gain force when it opens up, highlighting the notes of ripe red and black fruits. Its very good and well integrated toasted notes provided by the wood, along with a light minerality give elegance to this wine. Taste Very large, enveloping attack. Velvety and very tasty mid palate, with concentrated notes of fruit and well balanced notes of wood. Good acidity and integrated tannins. A complex and elegant wine with a long and lingering aftertaste, and hints of minerality provided by the terroir. L'Ermita is the purest expression of the Priorat slate soils.
