Can Blau Celler Can Blau 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

The D.O. Montsant, where Can Blau is located is horse shoe shaped appellation that surrounds the D.O. Priorat on three sides. It should have been included on the Priorat appellation but was excluded when it was designated. The winery selected the village of Mas Roig as the base of operations and purchased 60 acres of vineyards with an average age of 35 years. The varietal, Cariñena, was planted on sandy clay soil; Syrah on chalky soils and the Garnacha on slate, llicorella. The soils are similar in both areas with Montsant being a bit more complex with a mixture of slate (llicorella) clay and granite.

Suggested Recipe Pairing presented by
Coconut Rice Sweet Potato Cheesecake

RiceSelect's creamy Arborio gets blended with sweet potato, coconut milk and vanilla to create this decadent cheesecake. Pairs well with Saunternes; a white dessert wine that has hints of coconut from aging in oak barrels.
