- La Petite Agnes is produced in the Priorat Region located within the northeast province of Catalonia at Bodegas y Vinedos Cal Grau. DOQ Priorat is one of the most prestigious and smallest wine regions in the world. In fact it's so small that's it's nearly twice the size as NYC's Central Park. One of the benchmark characteristics in the wines from this region is their mineral character that the licorella (black slate) imparts. La Petite Agnes is a single vineyard estate bottling produced from Finca La Solana set in the steep slopes alongside the Siurana River, which connects to the Ebro River nearby. It's no coincidence that this is one of the most important and historical rivers for viticulture in Northern Spain running through Rioja, Navarra, and Aragon.
An elegant Priorat expression of tremendous value made from the Finca la Solana Single Vineyard at Bodegas Cal Grau. The traditional blend is opaque ruby in color. Benchmark smoky minerals on the nose from the region's Licorella or black slate soils, combine with ripe blackberries and dark berry licorice. Having been aged in exclusively French oak for 6 months, the mouth feel is seamless in texture with polished velvety tannins.
- "Nose is clear and polite, highlighting varietal aromas, hints of fruit, pomegranate and prunes, dressed with the touch of barrel aging, vanilla and toasted. The attack on the palate is soft and fresh, displaying a nice balance of fruity plums and notes of aging in barrel, producing cocoa and toasted aromas. Its aftertaste shows us round polished tannins with hints of liquorice" - Jilly Goolden, Wine Journalist.
