L'ATZAR

2011 Celler Mas La Mola

Grapes Syrah, Garnacha, Carignan, Cab Sauv, Merlot
Colour Red
Origin Spain, Priorat
ABV 14%

The young wine from Celler Mas La Mola in Priorat is both a selection of wines from the younger parcels of vines and some lots which were otherwise destined for the top wine, but used to balance this more forward and fresher drinking blend. Deep in colour, this is packed with black berry fruits, softened with hints of oak, and finishes with a juicy and crunchy acidity. It is great value. L&S (Aug 2012)

With l'Atzar, Alessandro and Jordi wanted to create a wine that offers structure and that can age beautifully, but at the same time is ready to drink young and enjoyable by itself as well as some of the lighter dishes that modern cuisine offers. A funkier and more direct wine than Mas la Mola this is the perfect introduction to Priorat for people who wants to discover the the potential of this wonderful wine region.

The vines are planted in different areas in the Poboleda district in a unique microclimate and terroir of Licorella slate slopes. Warm dry long days and cool nights guarantee perfect phenolic ripeness and good level of natural acidity to balance with the powerful character of the fruit. The average vines age is of 20 years.

A meticulous and rigorous selection happens in the vineyard where we allow the vines destined to the production of l'Atzar to be a bit more vigorous in order to retrieve freshness and allow the fruit to ripen slowly. A long cold maceration happens in the winery so that fine tannins are extracted. 50% of the wine has been aged fro a short period of time in oak, in order to round the texture but not to give any oak flavours, the rest is left in stainless steel for 8 moths before bottling.

A true expression of the Priorat terroir, powerful and seductive with blueberry fruit on the nose and classic flinty mineral Character of the wines from this region. Juicy and fruit driven with tender fruit tannins, plenty of acidity, grippy texture and long black cherries like aftertaste. A truly enjoyable vibrant young wine with enough complexity and structure to last in the cellar for 5 to 7 yearsWinemaker's notes(Nov 2012)

Celler Mas La Mola

This seven hectare property has been in the hands of the Ferrando family since 1860, and is planted with ancient vines of Garnatxa and Carinyena which give such great results on the famous 'licorella' soils of Priorat. Viticulture and winemaking have recently been taken over by Jordi Masdeu Catala, a young Spaniard in the area specializing in high end wines and former Roka/Zuma group sommelier Alessandro Marchesan.
