Llum d’ALENA is a Grenache based wine, sourced from the younger vineyards, up to 40 years old vines from their own certified-organic vineyards growing on licorella-sloped hills in Gratallops. Fermentation takes place in open barrels and it has been aged during 12 months in new and second year French oak barrels.
From the vintage 2009 the wine is elaborated under the new appellation “Vi de la Vila” from Gratallops, this legislation introduced in 2009 by the DOQ Priorat, recognises and protects each region’s different characteristics, viniculture, climatic, soil, etc.... with the purpose of highlighting their particular characteristics. Cal Batllet produces wines exclusively from their own vineyards, planted mainly with the autochthonous varieties Grenache and Carignan on licorella soils.
Tasting Notes: With a strong Priorat typicity, is the perfect wine of introduction to the Priorat region. Mineral, round, balanced, ripe and dark fruits, floral and herbaceous touches warm on the palate with mineral, dark fruit and dry herbs flavors, a very pleasing wine, elegant and without any complications.
Notes: Drinking beautifully now and over the next 6-8 years.
