Camins del Priorat is a red wine from Priorat, prepared by Alvaro Palacios. This winery is located in the town of Gratallops, in the centre of the Priorat (Tarragona). Camins del Priorat is a complete blend of Carignan, Grenache, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah. The grapes come from vineyards planted at an altitude of between 300 and 600m, on terraces and steep slopes of slate soils. The grapes ripen under a benevolent Mediterranean climate, with over 3,000 hours of sunshine annually and less than 380 mm annual rainfall. The vineyards are close to the sea, which gives them the freshness of summer.
Regarding the development of Camins del Priorat, the wort undergoes a temperature controlled fermentation in cement vats, stainless steel tanks and wooden vats. Subsequently malolactic fermentation also occurs. Finally, prior to marketing, this young wine from Priorat is aged in new French oak barrels and wooden vats for 8 months. Camins del Priorat represents the attempt of the Alvaro Palacios winery to disclose the essence of Priorat at an affordable price.
