This blend of Grenache, Syrah with a touch of Cabernet Sauvignon is Clos I Terrasses’ second wine, made from the grapes from younger vines, or the occasional declassified barrel of top wine Clos Erasmus. But it is a thing of beauty unto itself, aged for 16-18 months in a combination of vessels and full of intense aromas of fresh blackberries, cherries, and spice. Dense and concentrated, but extremely energetic and with huge ageing potential.

About Clos I Terrasses

Daphne Glorian is a pioneer in the Priorat 'New Wave'. Clos I Terrasses was born in 1989, when Alvaro Palacios and Rene Barbier persuaded their friend Daphne to do something crazy: spend all her savings on some old Garnacha vines, planted on 17 terraces, just outside the village of Gratallops. Priorat’s reputation as a region for fine wines was yet to be established.

The first 10 vintages were made at Barbier’s Clos Mogador, until Daphne purchased an old cellar from Palacios. The wines have gone from strength to strength, regularly gaining top marks, and Priorat is firmly on the map as one of Spain's top wine regions.
