Details for GR-174 Casa Gran del Siurana 2019
Bottle size and vintage
The GR-174 is a "Gran Recorrido" path, belonging to a network of long-distance footpaths, and one which runs through the Priorat from the mountain pass called Coll de la Teixeta, near Porrera, as far as Albarca, a village located in the most easterly part of the Sierra de Montsant. On the bottle label you'll find a small map showing it - a 72-km path which showcases this region's precipitous and mountainous landscape, bordered with woodlands, vineyards and olive groves. It makes visiting its singular towns possible — places steeped in wine-making history, medieval in character, with stone houses amid lofty streets — and looking round the Sierra de Montsant Natural Park to admire its exceptional sights and even visiting the ruins of the Cartuja de Escaladei, the ancient Carthusian Monastery. It's not a difficult path, as accessible and easy to enjoy as this wine named after it.
GR-174 is a very easily drinkable wine, open and remarkably lively! It's fundamentally a young wine, made primarily from Garnacha (40%) and Cariñena (20%), aged only partially in oak and just for a few months, and that's how our senses discern it: abounding with primary aromas and flavours, with plenty of fresh crisp fruit, without too much extraction yet not lacking body or powerfulness either, but it's unusual to come across a light-bodied wine in this denomination!
GR-174 appears a very vivacious colour in the glass, a bright ruby colour, and although it has sufficient acidity to evolve over several years, it's already superb now, very likeable and with a velvety texture. On the nose, it offers floral notes and above all plenty of ripe fruit, with a very refreshing menthol touch, and lots of volume; it's very juicy, oily, with a lovely sweetness emanating from that ripe fruit, profound and intense. So then, a wonderful walk through the countryside we mentioned earlier: dusty tracks lined with cistus bushes, thyme, lavender... their scent perfuming our path in the warm, dry, daytime air, yet cool at night. When the last drop has gone, you'll be left feeling that you've been out in the vineyard picking the grapes. Delicious fruit and a stunning landscape. Two experiences we advise you not to miss out on, fantastic at any time of the year.

Vintage 2019 is basically OK but will surely improve in one or preferably two years. Will reach 4 stars.by: Rafael (27 Jul) - Vintage 2019

This is a great everyday wine. Every time I open a bottle a I’m surprised at the quality considering the price. I recently ordered my 3rd case.by: mcaminante (12/11/2019) - Vintage 2018
lively and agreeable, great value
This is a very pleasant, medium bodied wine. It's made from a variety of grapes and there's a spectrum of flavours to enjoy. It's oaked but not excessively so. It's relatively young for a Priorat and so I'm saving a few bottles and seeing how they develop over a couple of years.
Casa Gran del Siurana
The merging of two estates, Casa Gran and La Fredat, in the municipality of Bellmunt del Priorat and the new Perelada project in the Priorat region. Casa Gran del Siurana is this great Empordà winery's new venture in the area, although not the first, since Castillo de Perelada was also involved in Cims de Porrera for several years. Their motive: to have a presence in the areas where Catalonia's best wines are being created and produced; and their philosophy remains the sam...
