Details for Perelada Finca La Garriga 2015
Bottle size and vintage
Finca La Garriga is one of the three great wines, together with Finca Malaveïna and Finca Espolla, from the Castillo de Perelada estate, made 100% from the indigenous variety Samsó (or Cariñena), originating from vines aged more than fifty years old.
Its marked varietal personality, its minerality (especially on the nose) and its freshness mean that, when tasted blind, it can easily be mistaken for a Priorat, although one of the smoother Priorats. The ease with which a wine of this maturity, intensity and complexity can be drunk is astonishing; overall, it is a tremendously fresh, palatable and powerful wine, with aromas seemingly fighting each other to be released from the glass. It regales us with ripe fruit aromas, of sweet fruit, rich tertiary notes (mushrooms, earth) and a gentle menthol freshness; a complex wine.
Captivated by that explosion of aromas, it succeeds in seducing us on the palate: a juicy, intense, dense but dry entry, with hints of orange peel... provide confirmation of a serious, elegant wine. Although not offering on the palate the same complexity as on the nose, the fruit is chewy (strawberry and red fruit in particular), it is fleshy, and offers a warm ensemble, with great intensity, spicy notes on a lightly mineral background and subtle ageing notes (for those accustomed to French oak, we need to point out that this wine is aged in American oak barrels!). All the way through the tasting, it gives the impression of containing a restrained powerfulness, enabling us to enjoy every sip, without ever growing tired of it, right to the end.

Outstanding wine for the price point
Currently my favourite wine. All of the Perelada wines are excellent but for me this is the stand out wine. Tastes like a wine priced at twice the actual costby: Luis (06/08/2019) - Vintage 2015
Es un vino muy equilibrado, 100% cariñena. Esta bien tener un monovarietal de Perelada que normalmente hacen coupages de muchas uvas.by: Susan Unitt (25/12/2018) - Vintage 2014

Wie immer gut
Dieser Wein ist Spitze, noch besser wenn er ausgiebig dekantiert wird. Ich trinke ihn immer wieder gern und empfehle ihn allen.by: Wolfgang Arndt (17/05/2017) - Vintage 2013
Seit Jahren trinke ich diesen Wein, den ich in Spanien entdeckt habe. Er ist sehr gehaltvoll, schöne Farbe, voll und fruchtig schmeckend, mit wenig Säure und mit einem guten Preis.
