Clos Erasmus | Clos I Terrasses

Quite simply, this wine is one of the absolute benchmarks for fine Priorat, and a reference in Spain. Sourced from 3 small vineyards in the Gratallops, this blend of Grenache, Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon undergoes strict berry selection and is fermented and aged for 20 months in a variety of vessels. It is all about dense fruit, exotic spice and licorella minerality, with a freshness and elegance are truly singular, even among the top wines of the appellation.
