2019 Clos Mogador Manyetes Vi de Vila Gratallops
The Rene Barbier Clos mogador Manyetes carries the "Vi de Villa Gratallops" on its label because it comes from Carinena vineyards in the village of Gratallops. The vineyard is almost 400 meters and is only 10Ha in size (of which only 3Ha of vines) in the most inhospitable Priorat area. The Manyetes is a 100% Carignan which has been allowed to mature for 18 months in the best (new) European oak. The bright purple-colored Manyetes has a complex nose of wet slate, graphite and peat mixed with blueberry, violet and licorice aromas in a very harmonious way. The taste is wonderfully rustic, with polished tannins, good acidity, pure flavors and a very long finish. It is made from the classic Priorat grape de Carignan from a very old vineyard. This is the brother of the better known Clos Mogador, but this is mainly because only 1740 bottles have been made (and from the 2020 only a few hundred bottles will be made). but this brother of the Clos Mogador is just as beautiful.
The different terroirs that exist within the Priorat wine appellation have led to the creation of a new "Village Wine - Gratallops". Similar to Burgundy, France and is a bit similar to Antinori with its Super Tuscans
Manyetes is the name of a vineyard in Gratallops: a daring venture where vines can barely survive given the region's poor soil and intense sunlight. The vines are literally surviving, but this is exactly what the main essence of Priorat wines is. Extremely low yields, one vine that has to root extremely deep on the steeply sloping slate slopes and this extraordinary vineyard in an extraordinary environment produces extraordinary wines.
