Characteristics of Vall Llach Finca Mas de la Rosa

Vall Llach Vi de Finca Mas de la Rosa is a red wine made in Priorat by the Celler Vall Llach.

Vall Llach Vi de Finca Mas de la Rosa is one of the few Catalan wines has achieved the Ví de Finca Qualificada (A quality wine rating), the highest honour that can be bestowed upon a Catalan wine.

Vall Llach Vi de Finca Mas de la Rosa is made with Carignan (90%) and Cabernet Sauvignon (10%) varieties from ancient vineyards planted on the Mas de la Rosa farm. A typical farm of Priorat with slate soils, called licorella in the area, with great sun exposure.

The harvest is done manually, as is all the work in the vineyard. The grapes are destemmed and macerated cold for 3 days before fermentation, which takes place in wooden barrels and stainless steel tanks for 17-19 days at a controlled temperature of 25-29ºC. Movement occurs daily and a gentle pumping is applied.

Once the fermentation is performed, the grapes are macerated for 12 days. After the maceration, and a gentle pressing, half the wine rests in stainless steel tanks and half in barrels, where malolactic fermentation will occur.

Vall Llach Vi de Finca Mas de la Rosa is aged in new lightly toasted French oak barrels of fine grain for 16 months.

Expressive, honest and full of personality. One of the great wines of Priorat, as proven by its recognition by Ví de Finca Qualificada.

Tasting notes Vall Llach Finca Mas de la Rosa

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 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 Intense cherry red with a garnet rim. Nose The nose is intense, elegant, complex and very expressive. Black fruit and ripe red fruit. Memories of chocolate, balsamic, mineral, violets, eucalyptus. Little by little spice and roasted notes become evident. Vanilla, coffee, cocoa. Delicate, elegant and very pleasant. Taste On the palate fresh and volumous. A powerful, deep wine, with great concentration, but also silky, creamy, very nice and elegant. Ripe fruits with toasted oak. Perfect acidity. Very long, persistent and mineral finish.
Sight Cherry red colour. Very high robe. Nose In the nose, this wine is complex and intense. Aromas of black fruit, mineral hints, reminiscences of chocolate, rose petals and forest. Delicate, elegant and very pleasant nose which entices us to take a sip. Taste Fresh and bulky attack. Balanced and deep wine with a really great concentration. Meadow flowers, aromatic herbs and red flowers are melted along with ripe fruits such as cherries, figs and plums. It is creamy, pleasant, intense and nice. Very long and mineral finish.

Imágenes y situación D.O.Q. Priorat

Celler Vall Llach was created at the beginning of the 90s by the singer Lluís Llach and the notary public Enric Costa in Porrera, one of the nine villages that comprise D.O.Q. Priorat. It is a very small winery that chooses to carry out the controlled microproduction of its farms or “trossos” with the aim of always putting quality before quantity. For this reason, at Celler Vall Llach have established a limit to the extension of their production and growth. Their aim is to keep the personalised and exhaustive control of each one of their wines, which are considered to be fascinating and unique. This is why at Celler Vall Llach they turn the relationship between human beings and the land into a delicate balance between the effort of a hard cultivation and the enjoyment of unique results.
