Laurel | Clos I Terrasses

Sourced from 3 small vineyards in the Gratallops, this blend of Grenache, Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon is Clos I Terrasses’ second wine, made from the grapes that don’t meet the very strict selection for top wine Clos Erasmus, younger vines, or the occasional declassified barrel. 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.
