Tim’s Tasting Notes

89

2015 Rojalet Negre, Montsant

£7.99, 13.5, Majestic

Tasted at: Wine of the week

Montsant is not as famous as neighbouring Priorat, but generally offers much better value. Blending Garnacha and Carignan, this isn't short of alcohol (we're close to the Med after all), but it has plenty of spice, plum and bramble fruit concentration and stony minerality for balance. In summer, it would make a great barbecue red. Right now, try it with winter stew.
