PRODUCT REVIEWS

Altos D'Oliva Gran Reserva 2010 is now deliciously mature a fine blend of tempranillo, garnacha and cabernet sauvignon. It has been our best-selling red wine at under £10 for many years. This vintage, with seven years bottle age, having spent 36 months in oak, is now at its peak and perfect for drinking. It is in my opinion, the equal of many much more expensive wines - watch out Rioja!

This remarkable wine is from high up in the relatively unknown Terra Alta of Catalunya, just South of Priorat, where the growers are very old school and do everything by hand. Quite extraordinarily great value.

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.
