The quality and character of a wine are products of the land in which the grapes grow, but also of each of the decisions made in the course of transforming these grapes into a special product to grace our table. In the zone of the Montsant appellation, the soils are mainly chalky, with some zones of clay and slate, all with high minerality and low fertility. The region is mountainous, located at the boundary between the Mediterranean and the continental climates, with a dry summer and winter and a moist spring and fall. Montsant is also a land of old vines, garnacha and cariñena planted just after phylloxera. Vines with very low yields on which the bunches mature evenly and reach optimum concentration at the moment of harvest, just when each grape is at its peak. Read less

Smooth tannins but could definitely decant over a few hours. Dark purple, Bright and medium-bodied wine reminiscent of merlot. Note of grapes and rubber on the palette with a somewhat long berry finish.

Wines from Montsant are frequently viewed as baby Priorats. The reason being that they're made in the area literally circling Priorat. This is a more accessible style of Montsant that's made mostly of Carignan (90%) and Grenache. It's unoaked, made via carbonic maceration and made in an all around easy but big style.

Montsant, SpainCeller el Masroig Sola Fred is a red blend from one of our favorite wineries, Celler el Masroig, in the Montsant region of northeast Spain. The Montsant region received DO status in 2001 and lies west of Barcelona bordering on the north of Priorat. Celler el Masroig was founded in 1917 as the Cooperativa of El Masroig. It is an association of grape and olive oil producers with approximately 300 members who are associated owners of the company. The winemaker is the young and dynamic Carles Escolar, who strongly believes in the potential of the Montsant appellation. Jay Miller of Wine Advocate praised the winery in April 2008: "Celler El Masroig, located in the up-and-coming region of Montsant, is a role model for how a cooperative ought to function. The winery keeps only the best grapes and sells off the rest to other producers, some of whom are quite well known. The wines are very fairly priced and offer an excellent price to quality ratio from the top to the bottom of the portfolio." We consider Sola Fred a Spanish red wine gem!Celler el Masroig Sola Fred is a blend of 90% Carignan and 10% Grenache. Medium in body with a vivid ruby color, the wine offers a fruit-forward nose of fresh red and dark fruit and earthy notes. On the palate it is bright, smooth and easy-drinking with flavors of strawberry, blackberry, cranberry and cocoa. The wine is rich and pleasant on the finish.Enjoy Celler el Masroig Sola Fred over the next 4-5 years with roast pork, grilled sausage, paella and aged cheeses. It also makes a great mulled wine!
