Almond blossom, Spring Fever in DOQ Priorat

Catalan wine in a nutshell!

69/365 – Catalonia – DOQ Priorat – Priorat – Clos Figueras – Clos Figueres 2004

Spring fever….,

…., spring is everywhere, love is in the air! Short one today. Have a wine tasting to get ready for tonight and kind of in a hurry! Won’t be any Catalan wines, as it is a tasting of 4 wines from other amazing wine making areas of the world. Tuscany, Douro, Central Coast and Mendoza will be represented!

The beautiful village of Porrera! The beautiful village of Porrera!

Sorry, but you’ll have to be there to know which wines they are, and what they taste. Only Catalonia is covered on this blog. But, anyhow, I hope you enjoy the pictures of Priorat in bloom and my tasting notes of one of my absolute favorites from the area!

Almonds blossoming straight out of the Licorella! Almonds blossoming straight out of the Licorella!

Does it get more beautiful? Only thing missing is a bottle of wine! Does it get more beautiful? Only thing missing is a bottle of wine!
