Product Description:

When Sara Perez talks about her wines you listen. She is one of those infectious characters that manage to explain terroir in ways that are abstract yet wholly understandable. Her passion when talking about the vineyards she exploits is palpable and visible. Waving her arms and hunching her shoulders it is impossible not to be drawn in; it’s quite mesmeric. You understand just what she means when she throws her arms up like a spring bursting from the earth and says 'Escurons, it is life. It needs the cool breath of an amphora to truly allow it to express itself”. And when she hunches her shoulders and furrows her arms to the earth and says 'Pesseroles is elemental and needs some oak to give it some warmth' you get it too. Mas Martinet has come a long way since estate's inception in 1989 (the same time that Clos Dofi, Clos Mogador, Clos Erasmus and Clos de l'Obac were established) Now the estate is swiftly rising to the very pinnacle of fine wine production in the area. The emphasis here is on the Grenache grape, while Carignan and Syrah, too, play leading roles, with Cabernet and Merlot making up the numbers. These are strikingly beautiful examples of what Priorato can achieve and demonstrate exactly why the wine-loving world are sitting up and taking note of this unique slate-rich region.
