This wine's 'Purgatory' moniker refers to a time when, some two-and-a-half centuries ago, monks of the Montserrat abbey toiled in the harsh landscape of the Desterrats estate, where the vines for this wine now stand. In quite a nice reversal, this modern-styled wine is all about pleasure, offering spiced dark fruit wrapped in velvety smoothness.
Tasting Note: This second wine to Grans Muralles is a richly textured blend with a modern feel. The blend includes grenache, syrah and carignan along with revived, Catalan varietals and offers a full-bodied, fleshy mouthfeel tempered by fresh acids. Notes of mineral and sea salt complement the flavours of juicy cassis, sweet tomato and a touch of dried mint the palatone. Still quite youthful although the tannins are nicely ripened. There is notable elegance here. Will appeal to fans of new and old world. Best 2018-2022. Score - 91. (Sara d'Amato, winealign.com, July 7, 2016)
