    Winemaker Notes

    Cherry red in color, the wine opens up with scents of blackberries and morello cherries with hints of Mediterranean forest herbs (bay leaf, thyme) and a touch of violets. The palate is full and rich, mouth-filling with extremely smooth tannins with a background texture of chocolate, but enough acidity to keep it juicy.

    Blend: 60% Carinyena, 40% Garnatxa

    Lo Tros wines are made by Cellers Grifoll Declara. The wine cellar of the Grifoll family goes back to 1880. Many generations of the Grifoll family have been producing wine from their own vineyards at “El Molar”. In 2001, when the new cellar “Cellers Grifoll Declara” was founded to produce and age great wines under the designation of origin Priorat & Montsant. The cellars (Priorat & Montsant), vineyards and all equipment are privately owned by its members.

    Tiny and entirely composed of craggy, jagged and deeply terraced vineyards, Priorat is a Catalan wine-producing region that was virtually abandoned until the early 1990s. Its renaissance came with the arrival of one man, René Barbier, who recognized the region’s forgotten potential. He banded with five friends to create five “Clos” in the village of Gratallops. Their aim was to revive some of Priorat’s ancient Carignan vines, as well as plant new—mainly French—varieties. These winemakers were technically skilled, well-trained and locally inspired; not surprisingly their results were a far cry from the few rustic and overly fermented wines already produced.

    This movement escalated Priorat’s popularity for a few reasons. Its new wines were modern and made with well-recognized varieties, namely old Carignan and Grenache blended with Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. When the demand arrived, scarcity commanded higher prices and as the region discovered its new acclaim, investors came running from near and far. Within ten years, the area under vine practically doubled.

    Priorat’s steep slopes of licorella (brown and black slate) and quartzite soils, protection from the cold winds of the Siera de Monstant and a lack of water, leading to incredibly low vine yields, all work together to make the region’s wines unique. While similar blends could and are produced elsewhere, the mineral essence and unprecedented concentration of a Priorat wine is unmistakable.
