Tasting Notes

The story

Priorat wines have the same DOCa status as Rioja wines (DOQ being the Catalan equivalent) but are generally less well-known than Rioja; in fact they are the only two Spanish wines at this highest qualification level. The Conreria d'Scala Dei winery was founded in 1997 by a priest, a teacher and a winemaker and named after the 12th century Cartoixa d'Escaladei, a Carthusian monastery in the nearby village of Scala Dei, which translates as "Ladder to God".

The wine

We've now moved on to the 2016 vintage of this lovely wine.

Food Pairing

Recommended to drink with game, duck, goose, steak and other red meats, also with paella and other Spanish dishes

Producer's Notes

Exudes classic Priorat aromas of black cherries and bramble fruit with notes of baked slate, licorice root and wild herbs. Medium to full-bodied, fresh and focused palate with a lengthy finish

This is a really elegant Priorat, very smooth with soft tannins. Full of fruit and with just a hint of vanilla, there is fresh acidity balancing the sweetness of the fruit making this a very balanced wine.
