Characteristics of Les Crestes

Les Crestes is a red wine from the D.O Priorat produced by the winery Mas Doix. This is a blend of Grenache, Cariñena and Syrah. The first varietal stands out as the dominant force.

The grapes for Les Crestes originates from vineyards averaging 20 years of age planded on sloped located at 400 meters above sea level. The soils are slate, a predominant type in the region.

The harvest is carried out by hand. The grapes are thus transported to the winery in small 10kg capacity boxes, this is to prevent breakages and unwanted fermentation. The grapes, once in the winery are again selected, this time from the sorting table.

Each parcel of land is vinified separately. For fermentation, the system "submerged cap" which consists of maintain the "cap" or the solid material of the grape that rises to the top in the must during the fermentation.

After a process of production, Les Crestes is aged in second year ultrafine grain French barrels for 10 months. The wine is not clarified of filtred, Les Crestes rests for several months in bottle.

The history of Mas Doix began in 1850. This small family winery is characterised by the personality of the lands in Priorat which are faithfully transferred to the wines.

Tasting notes Les Crestes

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.

It has good attack and a nice passage through the mouth. It's silky, with a defined, refreshing acidity, balanced with fleshy tannins that are noticeable but not at all annoying.

Long and persistent finish with a balsamic and spicy aftertaste. Highly recommended and with an excellent value for money.
