The Clos de Tafall is a blend of Grenache, Carignan, Cabernet and Syrah; it has intense aromas of herbs, balsamic, and ripe fruit and is intense and powerful on the palate with a long finish.
Dating only from 1999, Clos Berenguer is a small family-run estate in Priorat, not far from Barcelona. Clos Berenguer�s vineyards are planted partly on slate, but also partly on limestone, which they believe gives them more component parts than some bodegas in the region, that together can give particular complexity. The small gravity-fed winery is situated above an old manganese mine, inactive for almost a century, and Berenguer have restored some of the tunnels for storage of barrels and bottles. They farm just seven hectares of extremely old vines. The vineyards here are planted to a mix of indigenous and international varietals, including Carignan, Grenache Noir and Blanc, Pedro Ximenez, Syrah, and Cabernet.
