Clos Badaceli, Priorat a subtle and complex wine, which fully expresses the uniqueness of Priorat. Aromatically intense, notes of wild black fruits (plums and blueberries) appear on the nose, complemented by nuances of wood aging (roasted, spices and cedar). Sweet and concentrated from the start, it has a long and fresh finish.  This is a wine with lots of fruit on the nose, mineral aromatic nuances such as slate, and plenty structure and acidity. The winemakers believe that it has a minimum aging potential of twelve years, although well cellared it could likely exceed 25 years.

About the Producer

Cal Grau is located in El Lloar, on a 42-hectare farm surrounded by mountains, olive trees, almond trees and scrubland. The vineyards are classified into batches, based on altitude, soils, variety and orientation. The vineyard occupies an area of 22 hectares. This wine comes from the estate's vines that are around 20 years old. The vines rest on terraces where there is a high content of slate stone. Its name comes from the mountain that is located in front of the Winery and that shelters the vineyard from frost and inclement weather.
