Only a week or so after wondering whether carignan was a sensible choice for southern Victoria or perhaps for many regions (here’s a link), a blend of grenache (55%) and carignan (45%) arrived from Priorat. And I rather half expected that as sure as night follows day, it would prove to be an outstanding wine. And sure enough it was! As usual, there are no definitive views in wine. The best terroirs in the best hands inevitably produce wines of interest. My review of this excellent Priorat wine can be found if you follow this link.
