Characteristics of Cirerets

Cirerets is a red wine from Priorat produced by Bodegas Mas Alta. The winery is located in the town of Vilella Alta (Tarragona).

Cirerets is a blend of two of the great indigenous varieties of Priorat: Grenache and Carignan.

The grapes come from strains 50 years old located at an altitude of between 450 and 650 metres, planted on soils of licorella (slate soils typical of Priorat).

For its preparation, once the wine has completed the fermentation process, it undergoes aging for 18 months in French barrels from Allier.

Tasting notes Cirerets

The Priorat region was marked by heavy drought and heat. Following an autumn and winter with normal temperatures and rainfall, spring began with an abnormal drought and high temperatures. Flowering was successful, occurring before the expected date, but the rains didn’t come. During the summer the high temperatures continued, and the lack of rainfall resulted in the earliest harvest in history. In general, the wines of this vintage are noted for their concentration, being less pronounced in wines produced with local varieties such as Grenache or Cariñena. Perfect for enjoying young, and with a medium aging capacity.
We present the new 2016 vintage, characterised by the wettest winterin the last five years. Not only did it rain in winter, but there was also wet weather up until summer arrived, especially inMarch and April. In summer everything changed, and it was one of the driest inhistory, with only 28 litres being recorded between July and October.If we compare the temperatures in 2012 and 2016, the 2016 crophad to endure a much colder winter than in 2012, which turned outto be positive, since the frost cleared the fields ofvine parasites. During the spring, lower temperaturesthan in 2012 were also recorded.Due to all these climatic conditions there was a delay insprouting, which began on March 28th, and which led to a delayin flowering of between three and four weeks.Once the summer arrived, the Priorat got all the luck, sincethe rains disappeared, while in the rest of Europethey were incessant. It was something that nobody expected considering thewinter we’d had. Taking into account the delay insprouting, the harvest started around mid-October on some ofthe estates.Obtaining fresh wines with an extraordinary acidity is dueto this long duration of the grape in the strain that has so characterisedthis vintage.
The vintage began in autumn in the best possible way, with good rainfalls that would fill the water reserves for optimal growth development. Winter was characterised by low temperatures and even snow covered some areas of Priorat. March started wet and cold, which delayed the budding of the vines. In mid-May, flowering was encouraged and was followed by a somewhat unstable June with several rainfalls.
A year that started with some problems with the flowering but ended up being very good. Winter was colder and rainier than usual. Spring continued with days of low temperatures and a lot of water that delayed flowering and the consequent setting problems until the end of March, affected production. After a complicated year, when the summer began, the rains stopped and the temperatures rose, providing excellent ripening due to optimal rainfall during the year. The year has therefore been one of the best in recent years. Fluidity, acidity and concentration augur for a long life of the wines of this vintage.
Sight Medium cherry red garnet, clean and bright trim. Nose Medium-high intensity and complexity. With aromas of ripe red fruit and floral notes, minerals and spices. Final touch of herbs. Taste Good entry, tasty and meaty step. Good acidity and very balanced. Floral notes with red fruit with a long finish.
Sight Black cherry with a ruby coloured edge. Intense, clean and bright. Nose Great evolution. Ripe and fresh red fruit gives way to floral aromas and minerals. The cariñena grape is noticed because of its balsamic aromas. Taste On the palate we find melted yet very elegant tannins. This red wine is very fresh, with a long aftertaste thanks to its good acidity. Notes of red fruit and flowers from the Garnacha linger.
