A few years ago, I found myself with a free afternoon in the Priorat region of Catalonia in northeast Spain and set off on the back roads to lose myself (and all sense of direction) in its rugged hills. Through the rolled-down windows, the breeze carried the wonderful scents of wild flowers and sotobosque (garrigue) undergrowth and, while the summer sun was harsh, at times blinding, it gradually gave way to the softer hues of a Mediterranean evening: glowing, shimmering, a final warm embrace before nightfall.

This Decanter tasting of Priorat wines brought to mind that moment in time and took the judging panel on a journey through the region’s varied landscapes, its bright and bold styles as well as its more subtle nuances and its unique Catalan character.
