Perinet Merit Priorat 2016
Merit is an excellent red wine from 2016 and a pure expression of Priorat's terroir. The wine is a cupage of Merlot and Syrah with a little Garnatxa and Carinyena (35% Merlot, 30% Syrah, 19% Garnatxa, 16% Carinyena) from the two high-lying fields Mas d'en Xes and Mas Vell, which create a complex and clear wine.
The grapes are hand-picked and placed directly in the fridge 5 days before the fermentation starts in steel tanks. The winery uses maceration for 20 days to achieve the perfect taste and soft tannins. The wine is stored for 12 months in steel tanks that make the wine round.
The wine is thus made without the use of oak barrels to give as pure an expression as possible. Merit is a strong wine with an alcohol percentage of 14.5%, which is well suited for strong stews, poultry, beef and game. We recommend decanting the wine 2 hours before drinking and serving it at 16-18 degrees.
