Production: Organic red wine from a single vineyard; Finca Salanques in Torroja del Priorat one of the three plots that Mas Igneus has in property in three different villages within the D.O., in steep slate terraces with good south facing exposure at 400-500 meters above sea level and organically farmed as the rest of the vineyards of the estate. Mas Igneus can boast of pioneering organic viticulture in the Priorat, and all their organic wines are fully certified CCPAE. The new Mas Igneus Cellar inaugurated in 2004 in the municipality of Gratallops was designed to be in harmony with the natural surroundings of the site. 100% Samsó harvested and selected manually grape by grape. Fermentation directly in oak barrel with manual pigeage. The wine has aged during 18 months in new French oak barrels (90%) and the rest in American oak. At the end of the process the wines are bottled unfined and with only a very light filtering.
Tasting Notes: Deep color, garnet red. At first toasted notes from the new oak come through and as they disappear give way to more complex aromas, licorice and species combined with loads of red fruit with wonderful ripeness. Pleasant velvety palate, marked minerality with good balance between fruit and wood. Supple rounded tannins well integrated and finishing with outstanding length.
Notes: It can be enjoyed at this point or it can be given an additional 6 – 8 years cellaring.
