Les Terrasses is one of the most affordable wines made by Álvaro Palacios in Priorat, a land that owes him homage as one of its "discoverers" when it comes to making quality wines. Like its “older brothers”, the imposing L'Ermita and Finca Dofí, Les Terrasses is a wine that expresses the personality of the slate terroir, although this one does so with a fresher and more lively profile.
Grape: Grenache and Carignan
Alcoholic degree: 14.5% Vol.
Service temperature: 16 °C.
It is a wine with an intense color, dark cherry color and violet edges. On the nose there are fresh balsamic notes, many hints of the Mediterranean forest, tasty toasted notes, expressive ripe fruit, spicy notes (vanilla, cloves, tobacco). On the palate it is very broad, enveloping, very tasty and expressive. The balsamic notes and excellent acidity provide a welcome freshness that balances the power and warmth of the toasted notes and the fleshy fruit. Silky and well integrated tannins. Long and very persistent finish.
