    Wine Advocate-Parker :
    All wines from 2016 have noticeably and analytically higher acidity than the same wines from 2015, and the unbottled vi de vila 2016 Gratallops is no exception. It resulted in a very different varietal mix than the previous year, with a lot more Cariñena (13%) in the blend that also includes 85% Garnacha and 2% white grapes: Garnacha Blanca, Macabeo and PX. It's open and expressive, with a clear Mediterranean personality: full of fennel and aniseed, balsamic and very much showing the character of Gratallops. Tasted next to the 2015, you can feel how the new vintage has more of everything, concentration and power, yes, but also better balance and more freshness. It feels like Gratallops takes off in 2016. They expect to fill 16,665 bottles of it.
