Montsant Wine


This little wine-making area is part of Catalonia in Tarragona, and is to many considered a “baby Priorat” since it surrounds that region, producing wines from many of the same grapes and styles. But these wines have less pedigree and are considerably more affordable, but can be comparable in quality. In other words, this is a great go to region if you want a Priorat style on a budget. 
Montsant also shares much of Priorat’s distinguishable soil type, licorella, which is comprised mostly of granite and slate, with a shiny, black appearance. The vines are on elevated slopes which get plenty of sun by day and benefit from cooler temperatures at night. These conditions produce grapes that make complex wines of excellent quality and food friendliness. 
The main grapes grown are Garnacha and Cariñena. Other grapes such as Ull de Llebre (the local Tempranillo name), Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah are also grown and sometimes used as blending Read more »

  • Blau 2009


    "Sour" and volatile nose. Nice dark color. I think this is a deceptive wine. Initial palate sensation is that thie is a medium-bodied wine with olive branch flavors. As the wine moves through the mouth though, I realize that this is a quite full-bodied wine, and the annoying olive-branch flavor disappears. It doesn't burst with fruity flavor... Read More
