In the heart of the Priorat appellation, between the villages of Bellmunt and Falset, is Pinord’s Mas Blanc estate. Their 18 hectares of vineyard have been farmed organically from the beginning and most recently the family have adopted many biodynamic farming techniques. They believe by attempting to maintain a balance with the land they will be leaving it a better place for future generations.
The grapes are sourced from seven different plots of vineyard, where the soils are made up of a slate known locally as licorella. The vines are cultivated organically and harvested by hand.
Following a meticulous selection process, the grapes underwent a careful maceration, extracting the primary aromas, flavours and the deep colour of the final wine. It was then aged for 14 months in American and French oak barrels, followed by 12 months in bottle.
Ripe, dense black fruits, vanilla and chocolate aromas envelope the full bodied, but elegant palate which is rich and very silky with a long, smooth finish.
