Description

Les Terrasses stands out for its high aromatic and flavourful intensity, mineral elements and balsamic tones. It is a fresh, full-bodied and pleasant wine with a very long and flowing passage that surprises for its right level of acidity and ripe tannins.

Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate:
In 2019, Les Terrasses was exceptionally high in Garnacha the tendency in this cuvée. Cinema suffered more from the mildew of 2020, and the final blend of the 2020 Les Terrasses Velles Vinyes was 72% Garnacha and 28% Cariñena, with 14.5% alcohol. It is gentle, honest and with typicality representing the wines from yesteryear but clean and harmonious, with nice balance and no oxidation or volatility, so an updated version of the traditional wines.” 94 Points

ORIGIN
Extremadura is so named for its climate – extreme and harsh, with hot and dry summers and cold winters. The region produces bold, full-bodied wines due to this dry sunny weather that provides optimal ripening conditions and consistent sugar levels that are responsible for producing the wine’s potential alcohol content as well as shaping the depth of its flavours.
