L`Ermita Alvaro Palacios 2006
Alvaro Palacios is undoubtedly one of the most important winemakers in Spain and his pioneering efforts in Priorat have helped secure the regions reputation for being able to produce fine wines of profound character and quality. L’Ermita is his flagship wine sourced from a single ancient vineyard and 2006 marked the first ever release produced from 100% Garnacha. Beguilingly beautiful on the nose, it offers up scents of wild red summer berries, black cherry, liquorice, anise, Mediterranean herbs and crushed slate minerality. Stylish and suave on the palate, this is a marvellously multi-layered and complex wine now absolutely perfect for drinking.
