(at Vinoteca Marylebone, 11 Jun 2017)
Drinking Window: 2017 - 2021
The region of Montsant, in north-east Spain, almost completely encircles Priorat and shares the same 'llicorella' soil type, composed of granite and schist. This has a baked strawberry and date nose, with fine tannins on the palate underscoring sweet, ripe red fruits framed by tobacco and cedar. A beautiful and fragrant wine that will suit roast lamb or beef. Available from 14th July 2017.
