Some of the best things are unexpected. That £20 note in your pocket, the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow and Clos Erasmus Priorat. Despite its current global renown and acclaim, it actually started life by accident, when Swiss born Daphne Glorian visited Priorat with her friends in the late 1980s. Originally, Daphne had no intention of purchasing any vines, until Priorat pioneers Alvaro Palacios and Rene Barbier (of Clos Mogador) convinced her of the untapped potential of the area. Fast forward 20 years and two 100 point wines, that sell for several hundred pounds a bottle, and she is now firmly one of the go to producers in the area.


Tasting Notes

Tasting note from Winemaker/Owner Daphne Glorian “The journey from nose to palate is like following a trail through a jungle of hibiscus, passion fruit, to emerge suddenly into a bright landscape of raspberry bushes and juniper. The aftertaste is an everlasting mix of juicy fruit and wet slate. This vintage contains the occasional declassified barrel of Clos Erasmus”
