Review:

Finca Dofí is the last link in the chain before reaching the grandeur of L’Ermita. Containing 95% Garnacha, Álvaro Palacios’s star grape, it is an absolute delight due to the purity of its aromas and most seductive with its irresistible silkiness. On the nose it is totally smooth and elegant, and it simply melts in the mouth; it is dense, rich, concentrated and full of vitality, yet it flows through the palate without a single blemish. A wine that merits a fine burgundy glass so as to enjoy to the full all its charm and crisp freshness.

Summary of Álvaro Palacios's evaluation of the 2013 vintage

When the 2013 crop has attained a most excellent pigmentation, polyphenol intensity and drawn from all our short past history, we are able to say that what has been a complicated year meteorologically has now resulted in one of life’s real wonders with very high ageing potential. Any shortfall has been compensated by a historic concentration.

Rainfall had been copious since the very beginning of winter and remained plentiful until the arrival of a summer which, on the contrary, turned out to be one of the driest in history. Temperatures, much colder than in the previous year, managed to record as many as 14 frosts in the winter months and also remained slightly low in spring. The consequence of all that was a delay of between 3 and 4 weeks in flowering, but fortunately some excellent conditions for harvesting which kept the rains away from the Priorat when they continued to be plentiful in the rest of Europe.

It is this long time spent by the grapes on the vine which has produced wines of exceptional freshness and acidity, with some very rounded tannins and indescribable meatiness; in conclusion, these wines are very pleasant and full of life.
