Beautiful! This is a super-charged version of Gratallops with intense, rich, sweet fruit but with such a seam of freshness cutting right through the middle. The fruit has a sense of old vines about it, yet it is wonderfully fine and balanced with exceptional intensity and concentration of fruit. This is utterly joyful to drink. “Wine is made to be enjoyed” as Álvaro says and 2018 Finca Dofi is pure pleasure in a glass. Drink 2022-2035.

About Álvaro Palacios

The Palacios name is revered in the world of Spanish fine wine. The family's patriarch José Palacios Remondo started his Rioja winery in 1945, and with four of his nine children following in his footsteps, the dynasty lives on. His seventh child, son Álvaro Palacios put the acclaimed region of Priorat on the map with one of Spain's finest, most sought-after wines; the genre-defining L'Ermita.

Decanter Man of the Year (2015), Álvaro Palacios joined the hall of fame alongside winemaking legends; Robert Mondavi, Angelo Gaja & Serge Hochar. Having spent 2 years working at Petrus under Jean Pierre Moueix, before working alongside Rene Barbier, one of the biggest names in Priorat, Álvaro was well equipped when he started his own winery back in 1989.

Álvaro is "the dynamo and tour de force that has propelled Priorat to the forefront of the Spanish wine scene" – Luis Gutierrez, Wine Advocate. The scarcity and excellence of his flagship L’Ermita mean it comes at a premium, which is why it gives us great pleasure to offer the more affordable, and excitingly the highest-scoring vintage yet of Alvaro Palacios Priorat Finca Dofi 2019.
