WINE OF THE WEEK: Taste the Difference Priorat 2013

£10, Sainsbury's

You can pay a small fortune for a wine from the remote, hilly region of Priorat in Catalonia – home to some of Spain’s most expensive and recherché reds – and yet Sainsbury’s manages to put this one on the shelves at £10. It’s typically powerful with nutty, spicy, plum-and-cherry fruit and a slightly wild, stony edge that seems entirely in keeping with the rugged terrain. Four grape varieties go into the mix, Garnacha (aka Grenache), Cariñena (Carignan), Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon, and it’s a wine that cries out for red meat, game or something hearty with beans, pulses and vegetables, none of which should be a problem to source and enjoy at this time of year.
