Catalunya Wine

 

Catalunya (Catalonia in Spanish) is located in the north-east of the Iberian Peninsula and is home to many famous Spanish subregions.

Inland It is very hot in the summer and cold in the Winter (the Mediterranean Continental climate). And north to the Pyrenees has a climate typical of high mountain regions with very cold and snowy winters and hot summers with abundant rainfall.
 
Wine has been produced here since the time of the Romans, who started planting and producing grapes near Tarragona (which was the Iberian capital at the time). Since then, the winemaking region spread and flourished until the 19th century Phylloxera crisis killed most of the red grapes grown there.

  • Besllum Monstant 2008

    Snoothrank:

Inky purple with a clear ring. Lush, heavy nose of violets, blackberry, currant, vanilla, smokey oak (nuanced) with dark cherry. The palate - this is a powerful, teeth & tongue coa... Read More

The mid-palate is juicy wet with sweet tannins that are ... Read More

    Wonderful aroma notes of blueberry, blackberry and plum with pepper, gamy notes and cola following lead to a rich viscous palate with medium chewy tannins and an well melded acidic aftertaste. Well done - drink now through 2017. Paul 90 popints Read More
