Alvaro Palacios ‘Les Terrasses’ ‘Velles Vinyes’ 2014

Grenache from Spain
Review Date : 12-Aug-2016
Dark, deep, ruby-red colour with dark purple hues, very youthful, lighter on the rim. The nose is bright and primary in expression with clear and aromatic dark raspberry Garnacha showing. This has an array of fragrant red florals with a whole berry fermentation lift. Medium-full bodied, this is up-front, rich, juicy and sweet-fruited with dark raspberry flavours forming a soft, rounded core with depth and proportion. The tannins are supple and the palate has a surprising accessibility with its softness and lusciousness. The wine carries to a dry, textural finish. This is very modern, fruit-focussed Garnacha with great accessibility. 5-6+ years. 17.5+/20 Aug 2016 RRP $59.00
