Medium bodied reds that go down easy, with smooth tannins and supple fruit.

Earthy & Spicy

Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age.

Alcohol By Volume: 15.0%

Alcohol By Volume Guide

  • 10%
  • 16+%
Most wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.

Winemaker's Notes

Cherry red in color. Intense and fresh floral aromas, with a mint touch. In the mouth it is fruity, round, complex. A fine structured wine, well-balanced and elegant.

Varietals: Garnatxa (35%), Carinyena (25%), CabernetSauvignon (40%).

Ageing:50% aged during nine month sin French oak barrels.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2009 GR-174 offers up more mineral and earth notes along with plenty of spicy, layered red and black fruit. This nicely proportioned effort reveals excellent concentration and a lengthy, fruit-filled finish. It is an excellent value for drinking over the next 5-6 years and a good introduction to the basic style of Priorat. "
