Mas la Mola Negre Priorat 2005
The vines are planted in different parcels in the Poboleda district, in a unique terroir of llicorella slate slopes, that are identified by solar orientation, unique microclimate, varietals and different vines-stocks within varietals between 35 to 70 years old Garnatxa and Carinyena, and some Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah. Each vineyard and grape variety is vinified and aged separately, which gives us a great variety of blending possibilities for the final blend of Mas la Mola. Aged for 15 months in new and second year fine-grained, medium-toasted French Allier oak barrels. Only the best barrels from each year, are used for the final blend of Mas la Mola. Dark ruby colour. A bouquet of crushed stones, black cherries, blueberries and spicy, earthy notes. Ripe, concentrated and elegant on the palate with plenty of black cherries and dark berry fruit. Well structured with juicy firm tannins, velvety texture, mouth watering acidity and long complex slate mineral aftertaste.
Celler Mas la Mola is a winery in Poboleda in the Priorat region of Spain, founded by the Ferrando family in 1860. Jordi Masdeu Catala and Alessandro Marchesan have continued that family tradition to produce wines that are indicative of classic Priorat styles. The 7 hectare property grows old vine Garnacha, Carinena, Garnacha Blanca and Macabeo, produced in the boutique winery that has been operating for more than 150 years.
