Alvaro Palacios is a wine producer most famous for its Garnacha-based wines from Priorat. Established in 1990 by Alvaro Palacios himself, the winery has been forefront of Priorat's rise to fame as one of Spain's most prestigious wine regions.

After spending time working at Petrus in Pomerol, he bought his own vineyard in the then obscure region of Priorat, where the steep, slate-based hillsides covered in gnarled bush vines had been forgotten about in the second half of the 20th Century. Palacios soon grew his estate and now owns several vineyards in the area, often considered in the same league as Dominio de Pingus or Vega Sicilia.

Tasting Notes

An intense nucleus of dark blackberry and ripe blueberry fruit builds and builds, mingling with a vanilla pod essence and a lavender lift. This is incredibly concentrated with succulent, super-sweet, molten coulis enveloping the palate. The fruit remains wonderfully fresh still, whilst fine, gilded tannins impressively coat the mouth. This is sensational with a long, intense and powerful finish.

Food Pairing

Aged cheeses, Pork dishes, Salmon, or Barbeque.

Grape Variety: Grenache & Carignan
