I had high hopes of this wine and, indeed, the Els Escurçons was everything I hoped for.
Sara Pérez is the extremely talented daughter of José Luis Pérez, owner and winemaker of the famous cellar Mas Martinet and one of the winemakers responsible for putting Priorat on the international wine map.
Mas Martinet is best known for its flagship wine ‘Clos Martinet’, mainly made of Garnacha and completed with Cariñena, Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot.
There is also a ‘little brother’, called ‘Martinet Bru’.
However, Sara makes two cuvées in extremely limited numbers (less than 3.660 bottles per vintage): ‘Camí Pesseroles’ and ‘Els Escurçons’.
The first is a blend of mainly Cariñena with Garnacha (roughly 60-40) and is outstanding.
The latter is Dominated by Garnacha with a 10% Syrah … WOW! Mind-blowing!
Located in Eindhoven, in The Netherlands, Europe
Specialist in Italian, Spanish and South African wines
