Cellers Fuentes Gran Clos Blanco, 2017, Priorat DOQa, Spain
£31.50 (inc VAT)
Made from 100 year old vines. Nuff said.
J.M. Fuentes says, "Vines, like people, often reach their peak in the face of adversity."
The J.M. Fuentes Gran Clos estate is planted with vines aged up to 100 years. Winemaker Josep Angel Mestre hails from nearby Falset, considered the capital of DOCa Priorat. Arid, rugged, and nearly surrounded by the cliffs of nearby Montsant Mountains, the region is famed for its licorella soils comprised of black slate and shale rock.
