Product Description
Details

This is the new vintage of Mas Collet Selecció, produced by Celler de Capaçanes in the DO Montsant.

It is made from a blend of 40%Samsó (Carignan), 30% Grenache and 30% Cabernet Sauvignon.

Separately harvested in late September and all through October, this Spanish red wine was fermented and then macerated for 8 to 16 days in stainless steel tanks. The malolactic fermentation began in the tanks, but it was finished in American and French oak barrels 1 to 5 years old. After that, the wine was aged for 9 months.

Finally, this Crianza red wine put back into the tanks and aged for a further 6 months.

Drink Mas Collet Selecció 2017 until 2023.

Aerate 30 minutes before drinking.

Additional Information
Appearance

The red wine Mas Collet Selecció has an intense, bright cherry colour with a violet rim.

Nose

Clean and unpretentious, this red wine from Montsant exhibits aromas of ripe raspberries and blueberries, balanced by notions of toast, spices, underbush, green bell pepper and dim mineral remembrances.

Palate

Agile and smooth, this Montsant red wine by Celler de Capçanes feels spicy and gently toasted, with some balsamic and mineral nuances, alongside notes of wild berries, menthol and vegetables. Fresh acidity and long finish.

Our personal opinion

Savoury and characterful, Mas Collet Selecció 2017 is a stupendous value from Montsant.
