Characteristics of Nus

Nus is a sweet wine produced by the Mas d'en Gil winery in Priorat, it works to recover the tradition of making sweet wines in the Priorat.

Nus is made from a blend of Grenache, Syrah and Viognier.

The grapes come from the Villa Mas d'en Gil, a farm of 125 acres, the vineyard, which occupies only 45 of them, shares space with almond, hazelnut and olive trees and Mediterranean forest. It is a farm of old vines planted at an altitude of 300 metres above sea level with slate floors, called licorella in the Priorat.

Harvesting is done manually, waiting for the grapes to be perfectly ripe. Nus in Catalan means knot. A junction. And Nus is made from five red wines. The wine is fermented at a low temperature in order to obtain residual sugar.

Each of these wines are aged for 18 months in French oak barrels. After aging, it is finished cold and to settle the unstable particles.

Finally, the blend of all the wines that make this Nus de Mas d'en Gil is performed. A great sweet aged Priorat wine. Expressive, delicious and high quality.

Tasting notes Nus

A year with a very good balance. This vintage was characterised by the absence of water stress for the plants. Winter and spring were favourable in terms of rainfall and temperatures were slightly higher than usual. At the time of budding, there was no rain, so the vines developed in a suitable manner. The flowering took place in a clean way and the Grenache vines settled in an excellent way. Summer was characterised by cool and dry days, but also humid, which led to good photosynthesis and growth of the plants. During the end of the summer, before the harvest, there was still some humidity, which preserved the freshness of the soil and, consequently, achieving a gradual ripening of the grapes, perfect to retain the aromas and the good acidity. The negative factor was the rain during the harvest days. In short, the vintage has been somewhat atypical for Priorat, with wines that are less voluminous than in a normal year in the area, but with a good acidity that is reflected in the wines and that will keep them optimal for many years.
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 Nice cherry red colour with garnet reflections. Nose An intense nose. Jam and orange with ripe red fruits, cinnamon and smoked notes with a pleasant vanilla from aging. Taste The palate is very meaty and sweet. Memories of orange with raisins, prunes and certain minerals. Large and persistent.
