L'Ermita 1996 Priorat Veles Vinyes Alvaro Palacios - Large Format 150cl / 13.5%
A magnum of 1996 L'Ermita Velles Vinyes from Priorat in North Eastern Spain, produced by Alvaro Palacios. This comes in a wooden case.
Described by the late Spanish wine writer John Radford as 'arguably Spain's finest red wine, and certainly its most expensive', L'Ermita is grown on ferociously steep granite/schist slopes consisting of 90% Garnacha, 7% Carinena and 3% 'miscellaneous white grape varieties', planted between 1910 and 1940. Roughly 600 to 2000 bottles are produced each year, and 1996 was the fourth vintage produced by Alvaro Palacios since his purchase of the vineyard in 1993.
