Clos del Portal Negre de Negres Priorat

Clos del Portal Negre de Negres Priorat

€39.95

An expressive wine with intense aromas of fresh red and black fruits, followed by elegant toasted aromas with hints of chocolate. It has a powerful yet pleasant first impression. The mouthfeel is fresh and fruity with hints of toasted bread. A well balanced wine with excellent acidity and expressive tannins.

Description

Portal del Priorat is based on three wines which come from the Clos del Portal property, between the villages of Lloar and el Molar in a microclimate of 40 hectares (of which 15 are vineyards) running from the banks of the Siurana river to the Montsant foothills. Since 2001, little by little, the old, abandoned terraced plots known as “costers” have been restored. Following an advanced model of organic viticulture, the vines were replanted in high density, taking into consideration the characteristics of the Licorrella slate soil and the various orientations of the terrain. Only red wines are produced, in which the indigenous grape varieties of Garnatxa and Carinyena Predominate combined with adapted grapes: Syrah, a range of Cabernets, plus some experimental vines. The property is home to some of the oldest vines in the Priorat region.
