Reminder of Priorat Tasting at Wolfe's Friday and Spanish Value Case Deal
FRIDAY SEPTEMBER 16th
sPAIN’S HOTTEST WINEmaking Area the Priorat
at Wolfe’s Wine Shoppe
Priorat is now one of the most happening wine regions in Spain, but one which fairly recently went through a huge transition. Old-style Priorat had a reputation for being rough and massively alcoholic, but since the 1990s things have changed, and now the best wines from this region are some of Spain’s most sophisticated and sought-after reds. The secret here is spectacular terroir, hillside vineyards with poor soils and low yielding old vines are the key. The grapes here are Garnacha (known elsewhere as Grenache) and Cariñena (Carignan). Many of the most amazing examples come from old vines of these varieties and have the ability to express the Priorat terroir in profound ways. Add into the mix a spattering of international varieties, notably Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah and you have the modern day Priorat.
Wines to be tasted: Celler de L’Encastell, “Marge” 2003, Mas Perinet 2002, Roquers de Porrera 2002, Lo Givot 2002, Vall Llach “Idus” 2002, Fra Fulco 2001,
