Characteristics of Can Blau

Can Blau is a red wine from Montsant prepared by Cellers Can Blau, one of seven wineries that are part of Orowines group. Cellers Can Blau was founded in 2003 by the Gil family in El Molar.

The climate in this area is Mediterranean but with some continental influence. The mountains act as a natural barrier to the maritime influence, which causes a large temperature variation between day and night. In general, there are cold winters and hot dry summers. This wine is a blend of the two standard varieties of the area of Montsant, Grenache and Carignan, with a small percentage of Syrah. The vines have an average age of 40 years. The soils are different for each variety: slate soil and limestone for Grenache, sandy, clay soil for Carignan and limestone for Syrah. As for processing, after manual harvesting, vinification of each variety is carried out separately. Maceration-fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks for 20 days at a controlled temperature of 25 ° C. Finally, Can Blau rests for a minimum of 12 months in new French oak barrels. We recommend decanting an hour before enjoying it.
