Mas Doix

Priorat (Poboleda)

'Las Crestes' Garnatxa blend 2016

Size

Fruity, fresh, expressive, 'Les Crestes' is Mas Doix's 'entry' wine, a delicious, easy Priorat from younger vines with 5 metres of roots, producing 1 bottle/vine. Predominantly Garnatxa with 10% each Carinyena and Syrah. Berry selected, aged 10 months in aged French oak, and bottled unfiltered, unfined.

Light red cherry-berry, rosehip pretty, it's floral, and gently briary. Overall, Crestes has a pleasant sense of understatement. It's silky, and delicate, almost chalky in tannin profile. The llicorella presents as a very steely, almost carbon knife minerality in a long, fresh finish.
