2011 Finca Dofi Crianza, Alvaro Palacios, Priorat

£95.75 inc. VAT

Now here’s a real treat for Priorat fans, a very small parcel of mature Finca Dofi, produced by Alvaro Palacios.

2011 is the vintage that this wine leapt in quality and it is drinking beautifully right now, showing amazing elegance and purity of fruit. Here’s the Wine Advocate review from it’s release –

“The 2011 Finca Dofi represents a huge jump in quality for this wine. They have been re-grafting all the Cabernet Sauvignon to Garnacha (they’ve been doing that for six years) and Dofi has mostly fruit from north-facing plots which give it a special freshness, pure red fruit and blood orange, peach, subtle herbs and aniseed with an impressive elegance and balance, round and velvety tannins, without the chunkiness that Cabernet and Syrah give in Priorat, very long and persistent in the finish. I tasted it next to the 2010 Finca Dofi and you could feel the chunkiness of the Cabernet tannins in the wine, while 2011 had a rounder, softer and silkier texture. This is a superb Dofi, much more elegant and subtle than any vintage I remember, a quantum leap from past vintages. Bravo! It was only bottled in June and you can still feel a whiff of oak but it’s very drinkable and should also age for a few years.” 95 points.

We are talking just a few bottles available so treat yourself to a legendary glass of red produced by a legend.
