Morrisons The Best Priorat 2016

Morrisons Priorat

Sometimes it is important to remember that supermarkets own brand wines offer value to shoppers on a tight budget. Particularly, if the wine is from a well established wine country such as France, Italy or Spain. These supermarkets have equally well established networks to get quality wine to their customers. Morrisons have some interesting wines that garner acclaim and often these are in their Spanish category, so I thought to try this Priorat wine.

Priorat is one of the Spanish wine regions that is getting talking about.  It is located to the north east in Catalonia, however it has a unique climate and soil combination that produces its low yield reds.

This Morrisons Priorat is certainly intense, it has an acidity that does mean that this falls into the category of ‘food wine’. As a blend of Garnacha, Mazuela, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. It has a ripe cherry fruit and earthiness, with a distinctive liquorice streak all wrapped up in a rich oak. It is a good wine, but I am not sure that there are not better wines at that price point.
