PRODUCT REVIEWS

Clos Bartolomé is quintessentially Mr.Wheeler. Produced in tiny quantities, hand-crafted, full of flavour and stunning value. This is a seriously delicious red from Spain’s Priorat region, and is available in bottles and magnums.

Vintage after vintage the Bartolomé Vernet family create stunning single estate wines in Spain’s highly regarded Priorat region from their seven hectares of vines. Situated in the town of Bellmunt del Priorat in the southwest of the district, we have been enormous fans of Clos Bartolomé for years, snapping up every bottle we are offered. With production typically below 800 cases across their entire estate, the generous allocation afforded to Mr.Wheeler is still relatively small and so doesn't usually last very long.

Created using local garnacha and cariñena (carignan) grapes, the wine offers hints of warm spice and dried fig notes alongside black cherry, vanilla and a toasty character. Priorat’s high altitude situation means that warm days and cool nights aid the grapes in reaching full ripeness, whilst lending definition and aromatic complexity in the glass. On the palate the wine is bold, forceful, and richly fruited with a core of ripe, black cherry and exceptional texture. There's a wonderful lip-smacking mineral twist, adding freshness and a generous mouth-coating sweetness to the fruit.

A superb offering from Priorat which marries beautifully with chargrilled seasonal barbecue fare.

About the producer:
For many decades, and even through tough periods such as the 70s, the Bartolomé Vernet family steadfastly and lovingly farmed their “Trossos” (plots of land), and produced excellent quality fruit from garnacha and cariñena (carignan) varieties.

In 1997 they were able to go one step further and started bottling their own wine rather than sell it in bulk. Since then Josep Bartolomé and his son-in-law, Antonio Rodriguez have further raised the quality of the wines at this tiny (less than 10,000 bottles produced yearly) estate. The combination of very old vines and the exemplary attention to detail and dedication of the family combine to produce truly impressive wines.
