La Cartuja Priorat 2013

La Cartuja Priorat 2013

Sku: 067979

From a single estate of 59 acres located in the very heart of Priorat at 820 feet elevation with southeast facing slopes, La Cartuja showcases the mineral complexities of Priorat in a youthful, approachable style. The nutrient-poor soils here are composed of volcanic slate and sand imparting a mineral and graphite layer of flavor that is a signature of the appellation, combining the acidity of a cool climate with the ripe tannins of a warmer climate.

Vivid ruby. Smoky, spicy dark berries and mocha appear on the nose and in the mouth, with a subtle mineral nuance building in the glass. Tangy acidity adds lift and definition to the juicy, sharply focused palate. Finishes long and minerally with slow-building dusty tannins. Aged in used French oak barrels for six month. In the context of Priorat, this wine delivers excellent value.
