2020 Clos les Fites, La Perla del Priorat, Priorat

£27.75 inc. VAT

We love a drop of Priorat us Songbirds and this single vineyard offering is a true favourite. It’s a blend of Garnacha, Carinena and Cabernet Sauvignon and includes fruit from vines of over one hundred years old. This new vintage has as a silky elegance to add to the structure and intensity. This is one of the best value Priorats around and punches well above its price point.

Its name derives from the rudimentary columns (Fites) made of stones. Since the 12th century, fites were used as landmarks. After building the monastery Mas Dels Frares in 1450, the Monks of Scala Dei built many fites all around the property and all around the vineyards in order to delimit their land from their neighbours’. This land was called Priorat.

After fermentation the wine spends 12 months ageing in French oak barrels and then further time in bottle. The result is a rich, ripe red with great intensity. Mature cherry, blackberry, liquorice with a touch of black pepper. Beautifully smooth and silky on the palate with superb richness an a lovely, long spicy finish. Get this while you can.
