Description

The vines are planted on steep mountain slopes on slate soils. Harvesting is by hand using 10-15 kg boxes. First the grapes are de-stemmed and then selected berry by berry. The grapes are separated according to variety before undergoing a cold soak followed by fermentation in 300L French oak barriques, fine-grained and lightly toasted. The wine is aged for 6 months on its lees with daily bâtonage. Naturally cold stabilised (according to the seasonal temperatures). Ageing in bottle for 12 months before release.

About the producer

Mas d’en Blei includes 7 hectares of vineyards on the banks of the river Siurana, in Morera de Montsant, the heart of Priorat country. The vines grow amongst typical and striking Mediterranean landscape. There, perfectly integrated into the environment, stands the winery and a very old farmhouse, built before 1756. Mainly local varieties such as Garnacha and Cariñena are planted. The characteristic hallmarks of Priorat can easily be found at Mas d’en Blei: the prominence of ‘Llicorella’ (the local name for a type of black slate) and “costers” (steeply sloping vineyards), resulting in very low yielding vines. The resulting wines reflect the uniqueness of this terroir as well as the care lavished on the winemaking process.
