Characteristics of Serras del Priorat

An excellent Priorat wine, briefly aged in wood to achieve an expressive and young wine. In this very tasty new vintage, Clos Figueras decided to add Cabernet Sauvignon to add to the wine's aromatic complexity.

Along with the Grenache, the Samsó (Carignan) and the Syrah, the Cabernet Sauvignon adds the final piece to complete this great wine. The harvest is carried out by hand and after being selected on the sorting table, the grapes ferment in 25 hl vats with two treadings per day. After macerating for two weeks, the malolactic fermentation and ageing takes place in second use French oak barrels of 300 and 500 litre capacity. It ages for 7 months. Before being bottled it is lightly filtered. It is good to drink now but can also be drunk within the next 5 years. Serras del Priorat 2011, a wine which is excellent value for money, is a good way of getting to know Priorat.

Tasting notes Serras del Priorat

The Priorat region was marked 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 the high temperatures continued, and the lack of rainfall resulted in the earliest harvest in history. In general, the wines of this vintage are noted for their concentration, being less pronounced in wines produced with local varieties such as Grenache or Cariñena. Perfect for enjoying young, and with a medium aging capacity.
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.
Sight An intense picota cherry colour with violet reflections. Very clean and bright. Elegant and fine tears show on the glass. Nose High intensity, with aromas of red fruits intermixed with notes of aromatic herbs (bay leaves, rosemary) and nice creamy notes (vanilla, cream, toffee). Once opened out, it gains in complexity and expressiveness with lightly toasted notes, delicate floral ntoes and refreshing balsamic nuances. Priorat minerals noticed in the background. Taste Bulky and fresh attack. This red wine is very long, tasty and fleshy on the palate. It has a velvety texture, with juicy red and black fruit wrapped in creamy spices. Excellent acidity and ripe, solid tannins. Long and persistent finish which leaves toasted nuances, coffee and toffee lingering. A round wine to be enjoyed.

Taste Fresh attack and a long, tasty, meaty and bulky mid palate. This wine shows a velvety texture and juicy notes of red and black fruit wrapped in creamy spicy notes. Its tannins are well integrated and it has an excellent acidity. Long and lingering finish that leaves an aftertaste of toasted coffee and toffee. A rounded and very enjoyable wine.
Sight Intense, bright cherry colour with violet edges. High robe and high-coloured tears. Nose This wine is a festival of red and black fruits released along with spicy notes (vanilla, nutmeg), tobacco and aromas of creamy pastries. It shows some hints of the slate soils from which it come from. When it opens up, the slate and mineral notes gain in intensity and expressiveness and the fragrant flower arômas (especially violets) are felt. A seductive nose. Taste Intense and enveloping attack and a long, tasty, fleshy, velvety and smooth mid palate. Its abundant notes of ripe fruit are released along with violets and elegant notes of woods. It shows a perfect acidity and ripe tannins. Excellent, long and persitent finish. A round wine that shows a more modern Priorat and that will be enjoy from the first sip.
