Vi de vila (Village Wine) MANYETES   2008
 

The different terroirs which exist within the Priorat wine appellation have given rise to the creation of a new “Village Wine – Gratallops”. Just like in Burgundy, France. The prestige of this winemaking area knows no limits and Manyetes is a good example of this new wine label.

Manyetes is the name of a vineyard in Gratallops: A daring venture where vines can barely survive given the poor soil of the region, the intense sunlight and the bleak exposure. The vines are quite literally at the extreme of survival, however, this is exactly what gives rise to the principal essence of Priorat!

In this parched, arid area of steeply sloping slate hillsides, our Carignans struggle to survive. This is an extraordinary vineyard in an extraordinary setting. With the idea of bringing a touch of femininity to our wines, we have also planted the Grenache.

Today, the work has paid off and visitors to the region can appreciate the vast horizon where the Ebro river gives, from time to time, a modicum of humidity - just enough to allow the vines to survive.
The final result is staggering - a harmonious blend of these noble grapes is completely at one with the terroir and gives us a wine with minerality, femininity, subtlety and complexity which warms our hearts.

Manyetes is, quite simply, the essence of Priorat transformed into wine .

This is the name of a region of the territory of Gratallops in the Priorat. A daring venture where vines can barely survive given the poor soil of the region, the intense sunlight and the bleak exposure.

However, this is exactly what gives rise to the principal essence of Priorat!

In this parched area, arid and steeply sloping slate, are grown our Carignans - an extraordinary vineyard in an extraordinary setting.
With the idea of bringing a touch of feminity to the wines, we have also planted 30% of grenache.

Today, that work has paid off and visitors to the region can appreciate the vast horizon where the Ebro river gives from time to time out, a modicum of humidity - just enough to allow the vines to survive.

The final result is staggering - a harmonious blend of these noble grapes is completely at one with the terroir and gives us a wine with minerality, feminity, subtlelty and complexity which gives our hearts joy.

Manyetes is, quite simply, the essence of Priorat transformed into wine.
Fernando Zamora MANYETES   2008
 

Its color, intense deep red, still shows the purple hues of its current youthfulness.

Its aroma, intense and complex, is surprisingly deep. Subtle and persuasive, it initially evokes notes of ripe fruit (plums, currants, etc.) on a balsamic background. Gradually, as the wine’s complexity is enhanced by aeration, mineral notes evoke the slate soil where this unique wine was born.

The initial sensation is unctuous, fresh, and fruity. Its velvety rich and ripe tannins caress the palate. Its persistent finish envelops the palate with rich aromas. A superb wine that will improve over the next 10 years.
