Merum Priorati Ardiles Priorat (6 Bottle Case)
Merum Priorati is one of the most important wine estates in Priorat, founded in 2004 by two Catalan families, and located in the east of the appellation around the pretty village of Porrera. Winemaker Roger Oferill's impeccably made but not over polished wines are truly hand-made: fermentation is in small, open top vats with long cuvasion and the wines are intense and seriously complex against a backdrop of bright and vibrant modern fruit.
Merum Priorati Ardiles Priorat wine is a chunky and complex red - a must for heavy red lovers who are new to Priorat. A rich and intense aroma of black cherry, liquorice and toasty oak. Ripe plum, rosemary and vanilla characteristics on the poised palate with smooth yet powerful tannins. Notes of leather and spice on the finish. Great matched with slow-cooked shoulder of lamb, or rabbit braised with olive and herbs.
