Clos Bartolomé, Priorat 2018 (magnum)
A seriously delicious red from local garnacha and cariñena (carignan) grapes, the wine offers hints of warm spice and dried fig notes alongside black cherry, vanilla and a toasty character. Priorat's high altitude situation means that warm days and cool nights aid the grapes in reaching full ripeness. On the palate the wine is bold, forceful, and richly fruited with a core of ripe, black cherry and exceptional texture. There's a wonderful lip-smacking mineral twist, adding freshness and a generous mouth-coating sweetness to the fruit.
