“Fruity, fresh and expressive. A genuine young and delicious Priorat wine.”
Les Crestes vineyards are situated at a height of 400 meters above sea level on hillsides of pronounced slopes, with the characteristic slate soil called “licorella”. A third of the grapes comes from vineyards of more than 50 years old, and the rest comes from vineyards with an average of 15/20 years old.
A magnificent vintage. Very cool winter with snow and rain. Rainy spring with moderate temperatures. Fresh summer. Hot August with significant contrast day/night. Temperate and rainy September. A prodigious combination of refinement, subtleness, sharpness and strength. Balance all over.
