Description

The Salanques 2014 showcases a beautiful intense ruby red color, with a brilliance that denotes youth. The wine shows a wide range of aromas, such as slightly ripe red fruit (cherry, pomegranate) and blood orange nuances, very common of the best old Grenache. It accompanies the floral and balsamic side of the Carignan (violet, lavender), without forgetting the characteristic feature of the Priorat wines: this cold mineral, the hallmark of many wines of the region.

The palate reveals the 2014 vintage conditions: a cool summer and early autumn rain, which helped in a slow and optimum ripening of the fruit. Unlike warmer vintages, this one gives us a live wine, with crisp acidity, medium body and leaving fresh and balsamic sensation.

This is a wine with a lot of potential and it will improve in the coming months, making the tannins softer and the acidity smoother, a sign of a great life ahead.

Blend: 65% Grenache, 25% Carignane, 10 % Syrah

92 Points Wine & Spirits - Mostly old-vine garnacha and carinena, this blend includes ten percent syrah off younger vines, all grown around Poboleda. It’s a youthful wine, wild in black-cherry and gooseberry flavors, spices and herbs. It feels firm, yet there’s enough room for a lovely acidity to make its way through, refreshing the palate. Tight and powerful right now, it needs beef tamales.
