penchant is for older vintages of Priorat, then you should look for producers that made Cabernet or Merlot-based blends. These varieties were grown primarily by the best producers in the region:


Alvaro Palacios Clos Mogador Clos Erasmus Scala Dei Costers del Siurana Mas Doix Ferrer Bobet Mas Martinet Clos Figueras Clos Dominic


You may struggle to find Priorat made prior to 2000, this is because even the best wines typically age for no longer than 12 to 15 years (obviously there may be exceptions among the very best producers). If you do find some, I would caution against buying blind. The drinking window for Priorat – despite its bold character – is much shorter than say, top Bordeaux or Burgundy.


Finally…Rosa and Reece are back from Canada for a short sojourn – weddings to attend and all that – it was so lovely to see them and I had been busy collecting pork


scratchings for Rosa, who had WhatsApped me before coming home, to state her disappointment that a country so stunningly beautiful, with so much to offer had, evi- dently, very little to offer in the way of ‘scratchings’… I digress. Sunday lunch was requested and everyone (each one of them bringing their own kitchen sink…) crammed into my very humble abode. Much food was consumed…I’m a little embarrassed at the empty bottle count for recycling – much of it Priorat – and through the general haze and noise of people talking, children playing, babies feeding, laughing, eating, drinking…I do remember thinking how very, very lucky I am!
