Description

Masdeu is a wine from a single vineyard, one of the oldest vineyards of Scala Dei that the Carthusian monks were already working. In its elaboration, the way of working and the ancestral winemaking techniques that had disappeared in Priorat have been recovered, such as fermentation and refining in cement presses and tanks. It is one of the wines intended to show the different faces of the Garnacha in Scala Dei, depending on its height, soil and processing.

Tasting Notes

  • Palate
    A medium-bodied, rather aerial red with far more fruit on the palate than on the nose; rather warm but with a chalky-mineral finish that adds character.
  • Appearance Appearance
    Red wine.

Sommelier Review

“Single vineyard 100% Garnacha from vines planted in 1974! Whole cluster fermented in concrete tank. Lovely nose with black berries, red cherries, spices, coffee, licorice, medium to full bodied on the palate, ripe black fruits, medium acidity, spice, good balance, juicy fruity aftertaste.”
