Ardiles Priorat - This is a Priorat classic. ‘Sweet mulberry fruit is surrounded by herbal notes of thyme and fennel and underpinned with a hint of vanilla. Very ripe, fine tannins allow the sweet, juicy fruit to dominate but with the seriousness of leather, tobacco and coffee notes adding complexity.' Although it can be drunk now, this hedonistically styled wine should evolve for 3-5 years and drink well through 2022. Robert Parkers Wine Advocate
This isolated highland district is characterized by vineyards planted in deep slate soils with excellent drainage which, combined with the Mediterranean climate, provides ideal conditions for high quality fruit. The finest wines, of which this is one, are very fine indeed.
