Color: Amber color, with mahogany reflections, clean.
Alcohol content: 16%.
Serve with: Anything slight salty or savory, great with appetizers! The traditional tapas from this region are olives and salty nuts. Serve in small pours with 2 ice cubes, cold, or mix it, and make your own cocktail!
Talking About the Wines:
-Wine Enthusiast, March '18 gave 96 points to Priorat Natur NV Vermut. "Ruddy orange in hue, this Catalonia vermouth offers earthy aromas. The deep, intriguing palate has plenty of bittersweet interplay, flitting between hints of melon, white floral freshness, orange peel, and almond bitterness, accented with rosemary, and vanilla. Complex and delicious."
-International Wine Report, October ‘17 gave 90 points to Priorat Natur NV Vermut. “A blend of Garnatxa Blanca, Macabeu, and Pedro Ximenez, the intense aromas entice showcasing burnt cedar, peat moss, vanilla oil, and blood orange zest. Moderately sweet and weighing in at 16% alcohol there are ripe orange blossom, Pazzaz apple pie, lemongrass, and apricot oil flavors, that sit alongside some nice tension.”
