Mas Martinet Viticultors were one of the first wineries established a part of the Priorat renaissance in the 1980's. Owned by José Luis Perez, with his daughter Sara Perez now as winemaker, this pristine estate bottles only 3,000 cases annually from their low yielding 10 hectares of vineyards. They gained organic certification in 2009. There is careful attention to detail in all aspects of vinification and viticuture, with decisions based on terroir and vintage variation.
A single vineyard site located in one of the highest vine growing locations in Priorat. The vineyard is planted with 100% Grenache. This is the first vintage where the juice was fermented and aged entirely in Amphora and demi-john.
On the nose blackberries, tar, garrigue, rosemary. The berry fruit is concentrated on the medium bodied palette, and combines seamlessly with tea leaf and spice box. There is though a freshness to the wine and this acidity provides elegance and poise. The finish is long, showing superb purity.
