Can Blau - $16.00

Can Blau

Cellers Can Blau, founded in 2003, is one of the oldest projects of the Gil Family in Jumilla. Placed in El Molar, in the D.O. Montsant, this winery is the most diverse project regarding the grape varieties and the type of soils. The D.O. Montsant is nowadays releasing at its best the enological quality of its wines. Differently from its illustrious adjacent D.O. Priorato, in D.O. Montsant we work with unique varieties such as Cariñena or Mazuelo and Grenache, planted in and adapted to different types of soils. Nuria López Sarroca is the person in charge of the technical direction of the Winery.

Cellers Can Blau have 35Ha of vineyards, aged –on average- 40 years. We work with three different varieties, grown in three differently composed soils: sandy and clay soil for the Cariñena or Mazuelo vine, calcareous soil for the Syrah vine and slate and limestone-based soil for the Grenache, which gives personality and special features to grapes. 40% Mazuelo, 40% Garnacha, 20% Syrah. Estate vineyards, averaging 40 years-old, are located at about 2,000 feet along the sloping sides of the Sierra de Montsant. All of the vineyards are dry farmed without use of pesticides or herbicides and the winery is solar-powered. Each varietal is hand-harvested and fermented separately before being transferred to French oak barrels for 12 months aging. Mazuelo’s acidity and tannic structure balances the fruit of Garnacha and Syrah, while a year in French barrels adds toasty oak and spice to balance the rich dark berries. Fresh acidity and mineral notes, supple tannin. It showcases the best of each varietal, creating a balanced, complex wine.
