Agnes de Cervera La Petite Agnes Priorat Garnacha
The grenache wines of Priorat in Spain are luscious, seductive things, and this one is no exception. It comes on strong with vibrant ultra-ripe raspberries and cherries, with whiffs of violets and baked spices. The palate is fulsome and juicy, with fleshy fruit flavours, fine tannins, licks of earthiness, and a decent, succulent finish. You usually pay a lot more for wines out of this region, so jump on in, and stick a beef roast in the oven whilst you're at it.
Ashy regional nose, with fat cherry and red lipsticky fruit. Plush sweet berries are framed by classic- Priorat orange juice and carrot notes and cut by characteristic terroir mineral soiliness. This is incredibly good value Priorat. Made from 85% Garnacha and 15% Samsó, and aged for 3 months in French oak after temperature-controlled fermentation in stainless steel. The 3 months of oak treatment tucks in really well.
