Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2009 GR-174 offers up more mineral and earth notes along with plenty of spicy, layered red and black fruit. This nicely proportioned effort reveals excellent concentration and a lengthy, fruit-filled finish. It is an excellent value for drinking over the next 5-6 years and a good introduction to the basic style of Priorat.
Some years ago Castillo Perelada made a bid for the success of quality winemaking in the Empordà. This same passion for high expression wines has guided us to Priorat, one of the most highly regarded Designations of Origin in Spain and the world, and one of the few that are recognised as being a Qualified Designation of Origin.
Our venture with La Casa Gran del Siurana began with the main aim of creating modern, quality wines, through a winemaking process that would control all aspects from the moment the vine is planted onwards.
