Vega Escal 94 points

94 points for Vega Escal Priorat

We’re delighted (although not surprised) to announce that the 2017 vintage of Vega Escal, a blend of Garnacha, Cariñena and Shiraz from DO Priorat, has been awarded 94 points in the October 2020 edition of the prestigious North-American Wine & Spirits Magazine.

The magazine explained that, “Vega Escal covers 84 acres in the west end of Priorat, in and around the famed vineyard of Gratallops. The 2017 is a blend of equal parts merlot, garnacha and cabernet sauvignon, with small amounts of cariñena and syrah, aged in both French and American barrels. It showcases flavors of blue and black fruit rounded out with notes of fresh vanilla bean and toffee. It smells of wood, but in a pleasant way, with notes of fresh tree bark and whisky. Decant it to let it open up, and serve it with grilled meats.”
