Casa Gran Del Siurana GR-174 2008
For this one we go north east of Spain to the region of Catalunya, Tarragona to be precise just inland from the Mediterranean sea in Priorat one of the most focused and forward looking areas in the world that have been making full body wine with great intensity and minerality. Made from mainly Garnacha and Caranyena both traditional varieties of Priorat, this offers a full bodied, mineral and concentrated structure with great minerality and freshness. The tannins are substantial but they are ripe and on the whole, the wine offers great balance, profound and very full bodied. This is something that should ideally be drunk at around 15-16 degrees as this helps it to bring out the mineral notes and the freshness. Excellent with game, aged cheeses and generally speaking, robust food. It can also be cellared for a further 7-8 years.
