My first look at Priorat


My first look at Priorat


Had my first visit to Priorat yesterday. Remarkable how similar the soils are to the Douro, with schist, which here they call licorella.

The similarity is also helped by the fact that there are some steep slopes, with terracing needed. I was visiting with Torres, so I saw their two sites: one, a large new-ish vineyard at Porrera, at around 500 metres, the second near the winery at Lloar, near Gratallops, at 300 m.

It’s a really interesting region.
