While originally conceived of as a value wine, Les Terrasses "Velles Vignes" has slowly evolved into the essence of what makes Priorat special. Drawing on 15+ years of study, Terrasses is sourced from many of the region's steepest and oldest vineyards-many of them north-facing to avoid the intense afternoon sun. With the 2007 vintage, Alvaro acknowledged Les Terrasses' "graduation" by adding the "Velles Vignes" designation to the label.
Blend: 50% Garnacha, 50% Samso
"Graceful and harmonious, this red shows good depth, balancing juicy cherry and berry flavors with notes of vanilla, mountain herb and mineral. Drink now through 2022."-Wine Spectator
