INFO:
Priorat largely came out of nowhere in the past 20 years. To such an extent that when in 1992 the Spanish government published a guide to the country's wine regions, it wasn't even worthy of a single mention. That Priorat is now considered one of the best winemaking areas in Spain, and even in the world, is largely down to the work of this producer: Alvaro Palacios. His top-of-the-range L'Ermita sells for upwards of £300. Luckily, we don't need to pay that to get an idea of what the region can do.
