2019 Finca Dofi, Alvaro Palacios, Priorat

£75.75 inc. VAT

The best Finca Dofi yet? Quite possibly.

A stunning wine from Alvaro Palacios’ original vineyard that he purchased on his arrival in Priorat in the late 1980s. Since it’s very first vintage in 1990, Finca Dofí has been synonymous with quality wine from this historic region.

“The single-vineyard red 2019 Finca Dofí comes from the 14 hectares of vines planted across three parajes (lieu-dits) in Gratallops. This year, it’s 87% Garnacha, 12% Cariñena and 1% white grapes (Garnacha Blanca and Macabeo. It fermented in oak vats with indigenous yeasts and matured in large oak barrels (bocoyes and foudres) for 14 months. It’s classy, elegant and fresh with very clean aromas and flavors, not lacking concentration or power. There is superb definition and purity here; it has to be the finest and most elegant Dofí to date. It has finer tannins and more elegance than La Baixada this year. The 2018 was fragrant and this has more clout but superb balance. These two vintages have been great for Dofí. I still remember the 2005, hard as nails then and what the wine is now—spherical and velvety. Dofí on a roll… It was bottled in May 2021, and 21,146 bottles were produced. Drink 2022-2030.97 points, The Wine Advocate

Always worth buying two bottles of this wonderful wine, one for now and one for later.
