Mas Martinet Martinet Bru 2018
Martinet Bru is the perfect introduction to the Mas Martinet style sourced from what is considered the most drinkable slope in Priorat. A softer, silkier expression with more easy-going up front fruit, it drinks beautifully young, as many of Barcelona’s top restaurants can attest to. The grapes for Martinet Bru are all picked at the same time and co-fermented. The wine is a blend of predominantly Grenache and Syrah with a little Carignan, Cabernet and Merlot. Since 2010 this has come from a single vineyard that sits just outside of Falset. In Sara Perez’s words, “2018 will be seen as a new inflection point in the history of Priorat. It is the best vintage I have ever seen.” A modern, nice, appetising and fresh wine, but with the typical structure and minerality of the Priorat region.
