The 2017 Blai Ferré Billo is a great introduction to the schist terroir of Priorat. The wine is a blend dominated by Grenache and Shiraz.
This wine has a ruby colour. The wine is fresh, aged in stainless steel. On the palate, it has fruit characteristics of raspberry, red cherry, and plum. The fruit weight of this medium-bodied wine is good. Mocca flavours on the back palate, minerality and smoky notes, typical of the low vigour terroir, add to complexity. Medium acidity and tannins deliver a balanced and elegant mouthfeel before finishing dry.
This wine is quite easy, as perhaps indicated by the label, yet serious drinking and has settled better on day two after opening.
