Stylish, rich red wine from a top estate in one of Spain’s foremost fine wine regions

Spanish expert John Radford calls Priorato « Spain’s most traditional and yet most modern, exciting region ». And Artigas captures its essence beautifully. It’s a blend of Grenache with old vine Carignan and a modernising dose of Cabernet Sauvignon, aged for 16 months in Allier oak. Bodegas Mas Alta was founded by enterprising Belgian enthusiasts in 1999 in the unique, hilly terroir of Priorat, south of Barcelona. 80% of the grapes are from the estate with older vine fruit purchased from local growers. Consultancy is provided by respected French oenologists Michel Tardieu and Philippe Cambie. Despite 15% Vol it’s beautifully balanced by freshness, fruitiness and minerality. Decant and serve with a lamb tagine or a wild mushroom risotto.
