Vinergia, 2016 Los Tros Priorat
$229.20/ 6-bottle case
Cherry red in colour, the wine opens up with scents of blackberries and morello cherries with hints of Mediterranean forest herbs (bay leaf, thyme) and a touch of violets. The palate is full and rich, mouth-filling with extremely smooth tannins with a background texture of chocolate, but enough acidity to keep it juicy. 55% Carinyena, 45% Garnatxa.
Several generations of the Grifoll family have been dedicated to the cultivation of vines, almonds and olive trees in El Molar. Today, the vineyards, olive and almond trees grow in 72 plots under the supervision of the fifth generation. They cultivate according to organic and traditional viticulture practices, using both the knowledge of their ancestors and the advantages of new technologies. Since its inception, this wine label has not only established an enviable reputation in the competitive wine market, it has also been awarded many national and international prizes and awards. In 2016, the US-based Wine Enthusiast Magazine named Grifoll Declara wine cellars as one of the best 28 wineries in Spain.
Vinergia works closely with independent wineries throughout Spain, crafting in tandem signature wines at great values, over-delivering in the price/quality proposition.
