Mas dels Frares | Vinícola del Priorat

Vintage: 2021

Type of wine: young Red Wine

Grape varieties: Garnatxa negra, Carinyena, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon

Vines of Grenache and Carignan from 40 years old terraces; Merlot and Cabernet from 30 years old terraces. All of them collected in parcels from Gratallops, El Lloar, La Vilella Baixa and La Vilella Alta.

Elaboration: Handpicked grapes, fermentation in stainless steel tanks, and elaborated from a blend with a 15% of aged wine in French oak barrels for one year.

“Deep ruby appearance. The nose shows richness despite still being fairly closed. Ripe fruits like blueberries and red plums against a background of cedar and tobacco-leaf notes from the oak. Well-structured with lively acidity, grippy high quality tannins, salinity and smoothing alcohol, ending in a long finish in which oak and fruit continue in excellent balance. Drink now, but will also keep very well for another 2-4 years.”
