Terra Sanctus "Clos la Rae" Priorat 2014
Terra Sanctus means sacred earth - refers to the rich religious history steeped in the culture of the area and the dramatic hillside vineyards from which we find the old vines of Garnatxa and Carinyena for Clos la Rae. The average vine age is 50 years, with some up to 80 years
on unterraced margins. Soil is the classic llicorella slates with very low water retention, forcing the roots deep - as much as 30 meters - in search of water and nutrients.
Priorat is an ancient wine region in Spain with winemaking dating back to the 12th century. This area is famous for the red and black slate which reflects sunlight and to conserve heat. If you like Garnacha, you should try this wine.
60% Garnacha, 30% Syrah, 10% Carignan.
Aged for 14-16 months in French oak barrels.
A deep, intense blackberry color with black cherry on the nose complimented by aromas of stone, white pepper and herbs, a unique bouquet that is distinctively Priorat. Filled with ripe fruit, some meaty/gamy notes, liquid mineral, spice, and smooth tannin around the edges. Pair with TBone steak and BBQ ribs. 14.5% alc.
