|Tasting notes||Very dark, intense ruby colour. An aroma of preserves (cherry, blackberry) and spices on a highly characteristic mineral base. On the palate it has great volume with an admirable balance between the wine’s fruity density and its spicy notes acquired through ageing in new oak (cedar, toast). During its prolonged, complex finish there’s also a hint of chocolate and tobacco.|
|Food matching||Excellent with wild game, roasts, lamb stew or suckling pig as well as semi-soft cheeses such as young Manchego, Roncal or Mahón.|

Perpetual is a tribute to the well-aging wines of the Priorat: intense, full of character and born to defeat time.
