The scene for 2016 vintage takes advantage of the perfumed Garnatxa from Mas Vell vineyard and floral notes of Carinyena from the Pendents, our most sea breeze-influenced vineyard. Deep dark ruby pigments create a dense layer of colors. Aromas of anise, licorice and rosemary combine with subtle dry leaves. The long taste of the sea air and saltiness combine with the essence of the dry and rocky soil from Priorat to create well-integrated tannins. A wine to talk with, to feel the breath between the hot days in the rocky mountains of Priorat and sea salt in the cool evenings from the Mediterranean.
Our estate vineyards are characterized by their varietal mix and aspect. At Mas Vell, the sunny side of the vineyard is the most unique element. The vineyard is south facing with mature vines. Pendents represents the most pronounced slope within Perinet’s estate (in some parts of the vineyard, the slope exceeds 30%). With a completely northeast orientation, Pendents receives the strong influence of cooling Mediterranean winds. The sea breezes mitigate the heat and the singularly mineral soils of this 2016 Perinet 1194.
Dark deep ruby, hints of purple and velvet outskirts colour with a dense layer. On the nose shows a bouquet of dark fruits, blueberries, warm earth and toasty oak. Perfumed and floral open expression: anise, liquorice and rosemary honey. Fresh mint and shadows of pepper. On the palate is lush and mouth-filling with density, texture and length. Wild red fruits with well integrated silky tannins. Smooth and charming complexity. Balanced. Fresh and deep acidity, with hints of sea breeze & saltiness. Inspiring.
