The Oddbins Take

Way back when in 1194, a group of very clever monks decided to plant some Vitis Vinifera vines on the vertiginously steep slopes of Priorat. This was a great idea because the loose, granite-like 'llicorella' soil there is chuffing marvellous for Garnacha and Carignan. Fast forward 800 years to the 1990s and, after a long fallow period, a group of spunky young winemakers had the equally good idea of resurrecting the region's wine industry. They're making seriously good wine again, like this well-structured, raspberry jam-flavoured beauty. The monks would be proud.
