Mas Doix 1902 Carinyena Centenaria is a red wine produced by the winery Mas Doix, in Poboleda (Tarragona), within D.O.Q. Priorat.
Mas Doix was created in 1998 when the families Doix and Llagostera decided to continue with the winemaking tradition that began in 1850 and that was interrupted by phylloxera. After the phylloxera, in 1902 Grenache and Carignan were again planted, but these were sent to be vinified in the cooperative of Poboleda.
Currently, the whole vinification process is carried out in its facilities. It is a careful and meticulous process, from the selection of the grape in the vineyard to the ageing of all its wines in French oak barrels.
All the vineyards are located between 350 and 600 metres of altitude. Protected by two natural barriers, El Montsant and La Serra de Molló, the vineyards benefit from the cool breeze that enters through the northwest, positively slowing down the ripening process.
Mas Doix 1902 Carinyena Centenaria is a red wine made with Carignan planted in 1902 in vineyards located on licorella slopes between 350 and 500 metres of altitude.
Harvesting is carried out manually, placing the grapes in 10-kg boxes, and selecting the grapes in the winery, on a double selection table. Each plot is turned into wine individually. The fermentation takes place in stainless steel deposits with temperature control, and the maceration is done by sinking the cap. Once the alcoholic fermentation has ended, it goes through the ageing process for 16 months in French oak barrels of extra fine grain wood. This wine is bottled without clarifying or filtering.
