The GR-174 Priorat from the wine-growing region of Catalonia, which has been expanded in the barrel, is revealed in the glass in dense crimson. The nose shows this Casa Gran del Siurana red wine all kinds of plums, blackberries, mulberries, blackcurrants and shadow morals. As if this were not already impressive, black tea, vanilla and green peppers are added by the ageing in a small wooden barrel.
On the palate, the GR-174 Priorat from Casa Gran del Siurana starts wonderfully bearded, grippy and aromatic. On the tongue, this powerful red wine is characterized by an incredibly dense texture. In the finish, this storable red wine from the wine-growing region of Catalonia finally inspires with good length. Again, there are echoes of lily and shadow morals. In the reverberation, mineral notes of the slate-dominated soils are added.
Vinification of the GR-174 Priory of Casa Gran del Siurana
The powerful GR-174 Priorat from Catalonia is based on grapes from the Cabernet Sauvignon, Cariñena and Garnacha grapes. In Catalonia, the vines that produce the grapes for this wine grow on slate soils. The grapes of this top wine from Casa Gran del Siurana do not grow in the lowlands, but dig their roots in the underground in steep slopes. The steep slope cultivation ensures that even in cooler regions with shorter growing periods, the vines receive a maximum of sun. After harvesting, the grapes immediately reach the press house. Here they are selected and carefully ground. This is followed by fermentation in small wood at controlled temperatures. After its end, the GR-174 Priorat will be expanded in oak barriques for another 12 months.
