Here's a wine with incongruous credentials. It comes from Priorat, one of Spain’s most fashionable, but expensive wine-producing regions. It’s made made using the most meticulous biodynamic farming methods and is smartly-packaged, yet it costs less than £12 a bottle. We love it when a wine challenges our scepticism to an arm-wrestle and it wins. All that really matters is the final product and this unoaked blend of Grenache (80%) and Carignan has a delightful array of aromas, with headily perfumed cherry, hedgerow fruits and stewed plums together with more rustic notes of tobacco, wet earth and smouldering embers. The palate is gentle and elegant with the fruit wrapped in soft-textured tannins and the use of old oak barrels (no new oak) allowing the fruit to fully express itself with Priorat’s telltale mineral flourish to finish. There’s something cool, calm and collected in the way it goes about its business and it should be enjoyed in a similar way. Don’t glug it, sip it and enjoy the nuances. It’s got a lot of class and character for the money. 14% alc. Drink now – 2019.
