Gratavinum - Silvestris 2018
Producer: Gratavinum
Wine name: Silvestris
Classification: Priorat
Varieties: ,
ABV: 14.0

Super ripe, with some meaty, animal notes and a hint of iodine and iron. Big and concentrated, but with Carignan’s trademark sour twang and funkiness. A bit smoky and dusty as it opens up to the finish, but overall a great wine showing lots of regional and varietal typicity.

85% Carignan and 15% Syrah. Fermented in steel, aged in used oak, amphorae & demijohns.

This winery is owned by the same family as Pares Balta in Penedes, and operates under the same ethics – biodynamic viticulture, low intervention in the winery.
