Characteristics of Atzar

L’Atzar is a red wine produced by the winery Mas la Mola, in Poboleda, D.O.Q. Priorat.

 

Mas la Mola is a 7-hectare farm, currently cultivated by Jordi Masdeu and Alessandro Marchessan, intended to make their own wines in the Priorat area. They have come together to make high-quality wines with their own personality.

Vines are planted in two different areas of Poboleda. The Maccabeu vines, which are 35 years old, are planted on low-yield gravelly soils, and the plots with old Grenache, Carignan and White Grenache vines, are planted on sloping terrains with licorella slate, at 350-450 metres above sea level.

 

L’Atzar is a wine made with Red Grenache, Carignan and Syrah, from vines planted on licorella soils on sloping terrain. These vines are 20 years old, on average, and they are organically cultivated, although they are not certified.

Harvesting is carried out manually selecting the grapes in the vineyard and in the winery. Long cold maceration. 30% of the wine was aged for a short period of time in oak barrels. The rest was stored in stainless steel deposits for a few months before it was bottled.

L’Atzar is a powerful wine, with a lot of fruit and freshness. All this black fruit does not hide the typical minerality of the Priorat wines.

Tasting notes Atzar

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.
