Priorat's defining characteristic may be its minerality, attributed to the "Ilicorella" slate that spans the area. The best Priorat wines share a common backbone: inky color and a rich, concentrated texture. Riu Priorat is the collaborative effort of 3 renowned French winemakers: Laurent Combier, Jean-Michel Gerin and Peter Fischer. A blend of Grenache, Carignan, and Syrah, this wine embodies the best of Priorat. Black fruits and soft florals envelop the nose with a hint of minerality and balsamic vinegar. The palate is structured and powerful with weighty yet silky tannins and an elegant finish of dark fruits, licorice, and violets.
