Priorat ‘Fina’ A Vuit DO, Hidalgo Albert

£14.99

‘Fina’ (aged in oak for 12 months is a younger and very engaging example with lively fruit, the weightiness that you’d expect from old vine Garnacha (Grenache) and yet something easy and juicy about it. There’s spice and warm, red berry fruit and its tannins are well under control. The result is harmonious, unaggressive and deeply satisfying.

Sometimes suppliers have to play the long game with buyers. I enjoyed tasting these wines for several years while I waited for Priorat to be less of a well-kept secret amongst Spain’s top-end red wines. I’m not sure that moment has truly come but in the end I couldn’t wait any longer. Weighty reds and an exquisite white from the black slate and quartz slopes of the hills of south-west Catalonia.
