2017 BLACK SLATE Priorat 'Cellar Cecilio' 75cl (Catalunya, Spain)
Grapes: 70% Garnacha, 25% Carignan, 5% Syrah
Tasting: "Mid healthy garnet, heady nose and so svelte and polished on the palate. A strange and delightful mix of sweet, gentle palate entry and dry, slaty, minerally finish. Blackberry/elderberry fruit lifted by tension. I'd choose to drink this with something quite salty, perhaps chorizo? GV" Jancis Robinson MW, 10 December 2020
FYI: Priorat's rugged hillside vineyards are well known for being covered in 'llicorella' a kind of black slate.
