Details for La Guinardera Vi de Vila de Gratallops 2014
Bottle size and vintage
La Guinardera is the product of just 2 hectares of the estate bearing the same name, situated in Gratallops, Priorat. It is produced from 100% Garnacha grapes, the variety most readily identified with the Priorat and perfect for imparting the llicorella slate terroir.
La Guinardera has a truly amazing nose: coming over quite definitely in the foreground are wonderful wafts of peaches and dried apricots, which typically occur in botrytized white wines, followed by notes of violet, thyme and liquorice. Such an aromatic concoction, on a blind tasting, could throw us into complete confusion, deceiving us into thinking that this was a white wine. It simply brims with acidity and minerality on the palate: if we close our eyes, the sensations we feel are the same as when tasting a late harvest Tokaji Furmint.
A remarkable Garnacha: La Guinardera.

Second bottle of La Guinardera, and this one was even better than the other. Rich and powerful, but despite its high alcohol level (16%) it never comes across as hot or jammy. The tannic backbone is splendid, and it has just the right level of acidity. It will improve further with bottle age, but is utterly delicious now as well.by: Xavier Hernandez (26/06/2018) - Vintage 2013
