The grapes of this red wine from Priorat were carefully harvested and meticulously vinified.
Process went as follows. First, the grapes of Nus de Mas d'en Gil were naturally dried, most in the vines, and the rest laid out on cane mats. Then they began fermentation, and the process was stopped through addition of alcohol. As a result, some residual sugar remained in the wine.
After that, this Spanish red wine was drawn off and transferred into French oak barrels, where it was aged for 18 months.
Finally, Nus de Mas d'en Gil 2014 was blended, and aged for a few months in the bottle prior to its release.
Drink over the next 10 years.

Delicious and elegant, with an intoxicating texture and a silky passage, this Grenache sweet wine combines citrus, raisins, balsam and spices, as well by some mineral and smokey undertones. Produced by Mas d'en Gil, it is well defined and not oversweet, with a refreshing acidity and an extremely long, complex finish.
