PostHeaderIcon Garnatxa del Montsant

On my first trip through the region of the Priorat (Catalonia) last year, before the Wine Show, on his way to the beautiful city of Siurana, located atop a cliff with a spectacular charm, I went through the Cooperative Cornudella del Montsant, with the intention of tasting a wine, then buy it. My surprise is that it was closed too soon, and I kept wanting to try the famous Garnatxa del Montsant.

The Garnatxa of Montsant wine is a traditional liquor made from overripe grapes. After separatingthe stem and crushed, fermented dough to purchase a minimum natural alcoholic strength of 12 per 100 vol. Then it bleeds, press, filtered and wine alcohol leads to reach 15.5 per 100 vol. of an alcoholic strength by volume and up to 20 per 100 vol. It is aged in oak barrels.

A liqueur with very suggestive Appellation with not too pronounced sweetness and a light pink wine reminiscent of some family land, which in many peasant homes offer you your own, is doing great comes with eating walnuts, almonds and hazelnuts, as a dessert wine complements these nuts.

The nose is reminiscent of rosemary honey, with an aroma-impregnated wood alcohol. Flavor sweet, velvety, with a touch of acidity, which does not slobber. The aftertaste of oak, ripe strawberries and bush spices (rosemary and thyme) makes delicious to the palate and lasting.

By the way, he brought my brother in his new year trip through the lands of the Priorat and telepathy as if we call ourselves both at once without knowing me, that was about the land, and to ask him to dine and to visit . Certainly if you visit Siurana eat in the Venta del Pubill, before passing through Cornudella de Montsant and enjoy the homemade food and Montsant wine.
