Ferrer Family Wines Morlanda Priorat
D.O.Q. Priorat is one of the oldest wine regions of Spain, but has only recently emerged as one of the top wine regions in the world. The microclimate and “llicorella” slate soil of this petite appellation produce wines of intense power and character. The vineyards are located in the hills of Priorat, the highest of which is Morlanda, the wine’s namesake and inspiration.
Blend of Garnacha & Cariñena
Aged at least 12 months in new French Allier oak barrels.
Intense, deep red with flashes of garnet.
Intense opening aromas. A wine with many nuances, particularly complex. There are notes of ripe black fruits such as plum, and also some licorice, both of which balance well the aromas drawn from its long, careful aging in French oak barrels, delivering toasty notes, some tobacco, cedar wood and some light, spicy touches.
Powerful and complex with notes of ripe black fruit such as plums alongside licorice, tobacco, cedar wood, and light spices.
