Details

This new vintage of this excellent Spanish wine, Mas de Can Blau 2012 from the Montsant DO, has been crafted by the Can Blau winery, a brand belonging to the Juan Gil Family Estates.

This wine is crafted from a blend of Carignan (Cariñena), Syrah, and Grenache coming from small vineyards that have very different soils and micro-terroirs throughout the Montsant region, which provides for a very complex wine.

The harvest was carried out by hand and the grapes were individually selected at the vineyards.

Each grape variety received a separate vinification process in stainless-steel vats. Subsequently the wine was transferred into French oak barrels, where it completed malolactic fermentation and was aged for 18 months.

Drink until 2023+.

Decant a minimum of 1 hour before drinking.

 

Additional Information

Appearance This is a clean, intense, and bright cherry red coloured wine with scarlet edges.
Nose

Ripe black fruits and jams, alongside creamy seasonings (vanilla and cinnamon) along with a pinch of spices (pepper). Some toasted notes that become more enticing and marked with time. There are also earthy notes, intertwined with Cuban cigar aromas, cocoa and some earthy and mineral nuances.

Palate

Strong and full-bodied wine, but very fresh. Juicy red fruit, some creamy oak ageing notes, remembrances of flowers, spices, lavender, and deep mineral undertones. Very good acidity and bold tannins that promise a long life ahead. There is a very long finish that has a powerful persistency leaving flavorful and fruity sensations on the palate along with an aftertaste that is reminiscent of minerals, resin, blue flowers and fresh balsam.

Our personal opinion

Mas de Can Blau 2012 is powerful and age-worthy. Enjoy it with hearty dishes, and be sure to decant it.
