The Winery

Álvaro Palacios

Álvaro Palacios

Alvaro Palacios Priorat reaches in 1989, the town of Gratallops, along with Rene Barbier, Carles Pastrana and José Luis Pérez, with the intention to transmit to their wines (Bodegas Alvaro Palacios) the character of this land. They believed in the Priorat, full of sharp essences of Mediterranean sunshine, cliffs and shale, fennel and olive groves, a land of mystical soul.

4 /5

Camins del Priorat is een van onze absolute favorieten. De wijn wordt geproduceerd door Alvaro Palacios in de Priorat, ten noordwesten van Tarrogona in Catalonië. Dit relatief kleine wijngebied bevindt zich net onder de, bij het grote publiek bekendere, streek van Penedès, tussen Barcelona en Tarragona.De wijn heeft een heldere, donkerrode kleur, een aromatische neus met ondertonen van rode bessen en kruiden. Zijdezacht van textuur met een vleugje framboos. Lange afdronk. Parker schrijft in zijn beoordeling over de Camins Del Priorat: "Very good wine at a very good price" & "A superb introduction to Priorat could be the Camins del Priorat" Ieder jaar weer een geweldige wijn van de volgens Decanter beste wijnmaker Alvaro Palacios.

This supple red has good energy, with vibrant acidity fueling the bright berry and cherry fruit. Fresh herb and vanilla accents add interest. Graceful and alluring.

4/5

Black plum colour in the glass. At the nose rich aromas of licorice, currants and star anise.
In the mouth it's supple and velvety on the attack, the wine offers a gorgeous ripe blueberry, fig, and blackcurrant fruit accented by notes of dark roasted coffee beans and bakers chocolate. Fine, buffered tannins emerge on the wines back-palate and segue it to a long, spicy, licorice-tinged finish.

4/5

- Dark purple in colour, with equally dark fruit filling the nose. Bramble, blueberry and cherry aromas predominate, accompanied by subtle floral hints. Rich and smooth on the palate, with a spicy finish.
- The Camins is Alvaro's entry level wine and is great value for money.
- The grapes come from a range of climats around Gratallops and from 10-50 year old vines planted on terraced slopes. The cepage is 50% Carignena, 40% Garnacha and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah and the wine spends 8 months in older French barrels.
- Alvaro Palacios first came to Gratallops in 1989, thanks to a group of local producers commited to obtaining the best from Priorat, land characterized by its rugged environment, terraced hillside and old vines.
- The region has expanded nearly four times since but Alvaro is determined to produce the best wines from this difficult terrain has not diminished. The vines are planted mostly on very steep slopes at a high altitude.
- The roots go down very deep into the schist soil and organic viticulture is practiced.
- Limited stock, changing to 2013 soon.

4/5

It wasn't well paired with food, but the wine was good and tasty. I shared a few glasses of Alvaro Palacios Camins del Priorat Assemblage with that person I always am happy to drink wine with.
As nearly all of them this one shows also a cherry colour. Aromas of raisins. Alvaro Palacios Camins del Priorat Assemblage was ok, the kind of my taste.
