Mas Doix Grenache Blend Priorat Costers de Vinyes Velles 2001

Winemaker's Notes:

The Celler Mas Doix is a winery created by the Doix and Llagostera families in 1998; it is the reinitiation of a tradition that began in 1850. The gold medal obtained in the Universal Exhibition of Barcelona in 1888 and the silver medal won in the Universal Exhibition of Paris in 1878, remind us of the passion with which Juan Extrems Doix, Juan Doix's grandfather, used long ago to look after the vineyards and produce his wines. The phylloxera outbreak did not mean the end of the family's vineyards. They were replanted with Garnacha and Cariñena varieties, native to the Priorat region, thereby maintaining the growth of the vineyards while the production was sent to the co-operative in Poboleda until it was produced in our winery. Nowadays, we are labouring with love and passion for the fruit grown in our hundred-year-old vineyards so we can produce great wines. Grapes: 50% Garnacha, 47% Cari&ntilde,3% Merlot Soils: The Doix Estate is found at:350 m . above sea level on steep, terraced slopes with the characteristic licorella slate soil. Vines: The grapes come from old vines between 70 and 100 years old. They have an average production of 400 gr. per vine-stock. Climate: 2001 was a very dry and warm year, with little rain. Ageing: Aged for 15 months in new French oak barrels.
