Characteristics of Les Terrasses

Les Terrasses is a red wine coupage of the Garnacha and Cariñena varieties with 1% of local white grapes. It is made by the Álvaro Palacios winery in the D.O. Q. Priorat in Gratallops, Catalonia.

Les Terrasses wine is made from grapes that come from nine different Priorat towns: Gratallops, Porrera, Torroja, Scala Dei, Les Vilelles, Bellmunt, El Molar, El Lloar and Poboleda. The vines range in age from 62 to 92 years old, planted in plots with predominantly siliceous slate soils and ecologically cultivated.

When the clusters reach the winery, they are destemmed and gently squeezed to begin alcoholic fermentation in concrete and wooden vats, with native yeasts and regular cap plunges. The resulting wine undergoes malolactic fermentation in wooden vats and barrels and ages for 12 months in barrels.

Les Terrasses is a red wine from the renowned winemaker Álvaro Palacios that captures the personality of the steep slopes of Priorat. It carries the concentration and character of the old vines it is made from and has the winery’s characteristic elegance. An essential for wine lovers.

Tasting notes Les Terrasses

Les Terrasses 2017 is a red wine with aromas of ripe red and black fruits on the nose accompanied by roasted, mineral and balsamic nuances. On the palate it is velvety and fruity with a good structure and balanced acidity. A wine with a great aging potential that will be at its best after five years in the bottle.
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.
