Catalunya Wine

 

Catalunya (Catalonia in Spanish) is located in the north-east of the Iberian Peninsula and is home to many famous Spanish subregions. It is in an ideal location for wine making thanks to a diverse climate. The coast is known for dry and hot summers and mild winters (the Mediterranean climate). 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. 
 
Luckily for the Raventos family, conditions worked out in Penedes to replant vines and produce the first Cava, which is now the area&rsquo Read more »

    Wine review by Tom Hartmann


  • Segura Viudas Brut Cava NV

    Snoothrank:

    Excellent Cava. Balanced minerality and dense and crisp flavors. Green apple and green leaf, with more herbal and floral notes at a price point that is ridiculously low. Pairs beautifully with Oysters on the half shell. Read More

  • Raimat Albarino Castell de Raimat 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Clear light yellow color. Moderate, somewhat floral nose with some stoniness. On the tongue fruit flavors of green apple and some tropicalkiwi, pineapple. Substantial tart freshness. Some mineral or stony flavor at the very back of the palate. Quite light bodied. Very angular wine. Read More

  • Herencia Altes Garnaxta Negra 2013

    Snoothrank:

    This is very tightly wound and quite tannic. Now pour it into a decanter. Let it sit for several hours and .... WHAM! It comes out of its shell. It's lush, fruity and marvelous with roasted meats or chicken. Definitely, let is sit all day or overnight. Read More

  • Grans Muralles Espanja Katalonia Punaviinit Miguel Torres Do Conca de Barberà 2000

    Snoothrank:

    Had this last night with a steak. A huge and complex wine in its prime. Cork was crumbly, and had to decant the wine through a sieve, but that was the only complaint. Purple and opaque...powerful. Just a great glass. Read More

  • Montsant "Sola Fred". Celler El Masroig Carignan Spain Montsant Celler El Masroig 2009

    Snoothrank:

    The Solà Fred 2009 has the color of tawny light red. There is a sharpness on the nose with peppery kick. It has intense aromas of sweet cherries and overripe fruit. On the palate the taste is immediately milder and sweeter than I expected, however it rounds out very nicely into a slightly fuller bodied wine. There is bit of sweet linger with... Read More

  • Montebro Priorat Crianza 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Picked this one up at Jubilation. Dark, opaque, and inky in the glass. Full of spice, fig, vanilla, boysenberry, and blueberry on the nose. Medium body, soft, but a big mouthfull. Long finish with more complex savory and earthy notes. Very easy to drink, got along well with a grilled Steak and Mushroom and Carmelized Onion Chipolte Cream Sauce.... Read More

  • Melis Grenache Blend Priorat 2005

    Snoothrank:

    PnPed. Quite fruity (not California PN fruity) with red plum, strawberry flavors with some vanilla oak. Very little acid, and even though I am an acid bigot, this is not translated into a minus. A medium-bodied wine whose tannins appear to have settled nicely. A very enjoyable wine. Read More
