2015 Mas de Subirà

Mas de Subirà is made in Bellmunt del Priorat and was founded in 1997, although the vineyards that surround the modern winery are much older. With 170 acres of land, only 47 are planted vineyards, many of which are 25 to 40 years old. The vines typically yield under 1.25 tons per acre, low even for Priorat standards. The elevation is between 550 and 700 feet. The name of the winery is taken from the name of the highest hill in the area.

TASTING NOTES

Deep cherry red.

Very intense and aromatic on the nose, dominated by ripe black fruit, sloes and blackcurrants and a touch of liquorice. From the 12 month oak ageing period there are also toasty and spicy notes which deliver elegance and complexity on the nose.

It is bright and appealing on the opening palate, with good balanced acidity.

Very ripe, polished tannins from the barrel ageing give it great structure. On the back palate the intense fruity flavours return, giving the same ripe black fruit sensations which were perceived on the nose.

It is long in finish, perfect for drinking now, but also with bottle development potential.
