Alvaro Palacios, Finca Dofí, Priorat, Spain 2015
Alvaro Palacios: ‘Dofí is the history of my life in Priorat.’ A clear expression of Garnacha: . ‘Garnacha is a musical, joyful variety with its orange fruit.’
Alvaro Palacios Finca Dofí 2015 is grown on brown slate. Deep purple with pink rim. Impressively powerful, with a burst of black fruits, fresh, well-balanced, with a refined texture. A rasp of tannin gives structure, and a burst of juice explodes on the finish. An edge of liquorice and wild herbs to the finish. Very long, very fresh.
Indicative price £94 per 3. 22,000 bottles made. Contact FMV Wines
