D.O.Q. Priorat (Catalonia)
Salanques is a red wine from the Priorat, produced by the Mas Doix winery. The winery is located in the town of Poboleda (Tarragona), northeast of Priorat.
Salanques is a blend of Grenache (65%), Carignan (25%) and Syrah (10%) varieties. The grapes come from vineyards planted between 350 and 500m altitude on "licorella costers” (slate soils).
The harvest is done by hand and once in the winery the grapes go through a double selection table. Subsequently, a temperature-controlled fermentation occurs, keeping the fermenting grape whole.
After winemaking, the wine is aged for 14 months in new and second year French oak barrels of superfine grain.
Salanques 2017 is a concentrated red wine with aromas of ripe red and black fruits, floral notes and toasted hints. On the palate it’s fresh, lively and intense. A medium-bodied wine with fresh acidity, polished tannins and a long, balsamic finish.
