PRODUCT REVIEWS

A very remarkable Spanish discovery, fully mature and delicious red wine from the relatively unknown Terra Alta of Catalunya, just south of Priorat. This Gran Reserva is made from very old vines (up to 100 years old), and has been awarded a gold medal in Berlin. A delicious, exciting wine at an extraordinarily low price.

How does the wine taste?
A deep reddish purple with complex fruit aromas. A rich, fresh wine with red berry and mineral flavours that come from vines of a certain age.

What do the critics say?
“A tasty blend of Tempranillo, Cabernet Sauvignon and Garnacha that has spentt hree years in oak and two in bottle before release. It seems suspiciously cheap tome (a Rioja Gran Reserva would be twice if not thrice the price) but it cut the mustard when I tasted it and I enjoyed its smooth, spicy dark fruit and long chewy finish.”

A deep garnet colour, tobacco box and cedar nose with plummy, blackberry fruit. Aging excellently.

I wish you wouldn't ask me to review wines. If I say they are good others will buy them and there will be none left for me to reorder. If I say they are bad you will not publish my review. For what it's worth, this Gran Reserva falls into the first category. Of course, there is a third category, namely those which I do not intend to sample for a further decade or so.

This is great stuff. Tastes like a Gran Rserva because that is what it is - amazing price.
