Nearly very good, but suffers from the same problem as many Priorats…
Sainsbury’s Taste The Difference Priorat 2011, Spain (£11 Sainsbury’s)
I like the plump plummy berry notes here, and there’s also a fragrant herb-scented character breezing through the wine. However, some of the fruit seems to have been picked a bit late, so there’s a slightly shrivelled raisinny edge, and this, combined with some new oak, dries out some of the pleasure.
