Els Escurçons 2018 is a red wine that powerfully expresses the elegance and subtlety of the Garnacha with all the character of Priorat. Its surprising lightness and delicacy is reminiscent of the wines of yesteryear. A Garnacha that expresses its most floral side, accompanied by delicious toasted touches, spicy notes and hints of chocolate and mint. In short, one of Priorat’s great wines.

Els Escurçons is a red wine produced by the winery Mas Martinet in Falset (Tarragona), D.O.Q. Priorat.

The winery Mas Martinet was founded in 1986 by José Luís Pérez, oenologist, researcher, teacher, and one of the main characters in the revival of Priorat.

The farm Mas Martinet, located between Falset and Gratallops, one of the best areas of Priorat, has 7 hectares of vineyards. This farm was chosen back then by José Luís Pérez, according to studies of soils, exposures and microclimates of the areas.

In 2000, Mas Martinet chose to use only organic agriculture, to recover varieties that were almost extinct, to make single-vineyard wines, and to innovate with advice programmes and more efficient and sustainable production processes.

Currently, Mas Martinet is directed by his daughter, Sara Pérez, oenologist of Venus La Universal, among others.

Els Escurçons is a wine made from Red Grenache from the vineyard that bears the same name. This plot is located at 600 metres above sea level, planted on soils with licorella (weathered slate with iron and feldspar).

Harvesting is carried out manually, selecting the grapes in the vineyard. The grapes ferment with native years in different containers, wooden vats and cement deposits, for approximately one month. The ageing takes place in amphorae and 60-litre demijohns, combining different percentages according to the vintage.

Josep Lluis Perez was one of the pioneers behind what was widely seen as the revival of Priorat. The Perez Ovejero family founded the Mas Martinet winery in 1989, paying special attention to the orientations, varieties, climate and soils of the area. Twenty years later, it is his daughter Sara who is now in charge, managing the vineyard, which is also home to olive trees and forests. The winery has worked to recover native and traditional varieties, using biological agriculture to ensure that they produce wines that are a real reflection of the landscapes, terroir and surroundings from where they came.
Pictures and situation Mas Martinet
Priorat is craftsmanship and tradition, old and robust vines that are grown and born deep inside the province of Tarragona. They are grown on slopes that are sleety with low fertility and difficult to grow in. In Priorat they produce great red wines of an excellent quality, a maroon colour, robust, dense and rich flavour, intense aromas and sometimes there are reflections present of minerals from the soils.
