Clos Galena is a wine of intense cherry colour, almost opaque. It is well balanced and elegant with remarkable mineral aromas which express the Priorat “terroir”. It has a remarkable complexity of ripe fruits turning into jam with interesting balsamic aromas combined with sweet spices and light mandarin. It is a full bodied and complex wine with long and intense finish with pronounced minerality. It opens slowly, emerging a wide range of aromas and mineral soul of Priorat.
Clos Galena vintage 2012, received 94 points from Robert Parker and Wine Spectator.
