A true expression of the Priorat region, powerful and seductive with blueberry fruit on the nose and the classic flinty mineral character of the wines from this region. Juicy and fruit-driven with tender tannins and plenty of acidity. Smooth and luscious on the palate with a grippy texture, hints of herbs and spices and a long fleshy berry and black cherry finish.
The fruit was sourced from various parts of the Poboleda district of Priorat, where the native Garnacha (here spelt Garnatxa) and Carignano varieties thrive in the unique microclimate and Llicorella slate slopes. Long, warm, dry days and cool nights give perfect phenolic ripeness and good levels of natural acidity to balance the powerful character of the fruit. The average age of the vines is 20 years and they are farmed organically.
L‘Expressió del Priorat is produced by the team at Mas La Mola. Their aim was to create a wine that offers the structure of classic Priorat while being ready to drink young. Most of the fruit comes from younger vines in Mas La Mola’s vineyards, which are supplemented by the two other vineyards that they manage. Farmed organically, the vines are planted on the region’s distinctive llicorella slate soils and have an average age of 20 years old.
